2017-7 Webinar Recording: NF Mentoring Lyme and PAN/PANDAS Capanna-Hodge

2017-7 Webinar Recording: NF Mentoring Lyme and PAN/PANDAS Capanna-Hodge

Description: Presented by Roseann Capanna-Hodge, EdD, LPC, BCN. Lyme Disease and PANS/PANDAS are emerging health crises that have a far reaching impact on the field of mental health. Infectious disease can and does cause neuropsychiatric and neurocognitive symptomatology. PANS stands for Pediatric Acute-onset Neuropsychiatric Syndrome and PANDAS stands for Pediatric Autoimmune Neuropsychiatric Disorders Associated with Streptococcal Infections. PANS/PANDAS occur when an infectious trigger (such as Strep, Lyme or Tick-borne Disease, virus, bacteria), environmental factors or other possible triggers create a misdirected immune response, resulting in inflammation on a childs brain otherwise known as autoimmune encephalopathy. In turn, the child quickly begins to exhibit life-changing psychiatric and neurocognitive symptoms. With Lyme Disease and PANS/PANDAS, there can be a waxing and waning of symptoms, which makes diagnosis further complicated.
