Functional neurological disorder — a newer and broader term that includes what some people call conversion disorder — features nervous system symptoms that can't be explained by a neurological disease or other medical condition. In this workshop you will learn how FND presents clinically, how a CBT framework understands FND, and how to effectively work with clients experiencing FND.
