About the course

This one-day workshop examines cognitive behaviour therapy techniques used for patients with functional neurological disorder (FND) symptoms.

This course is open to health professionals who have an interest in learning more about evidence-based CBT* and how this can help patients gain improved management of their FND symptoms, in the hope of improving their quality of life.

Approximately one-third of outpatient neurology clinic attendances are patients reporting functional neurological symptoms**. Nationally there are limited sources of treatment and support for this client group and yet health professionals regularly see patients with FND within their services.

The workshop will feature presentations, case studies, live case examples, as well as interactive discussion. You are encouraged to bring your own case examples for open discussion around barriers and difficulties when treating this client group. This will be facilitated by an expert panel of clinicians working in specialist FND services within Neuropsychiatry Outpatients at Maudsley Hospital and the Lishman Unit at the Bethlem Hospital.
