Young children with OCD benefit from family-based treatment
Date:5/15/2008

  • Treatment of children experiencing early childhood-onset OCD will be most effective if parents are involved in all phases of treatment.

  • Clinicians should consider the childs unique developmental characteristics and tailor psychoeducation, exposures and homework accordingly.

  • Clinicians should take time to understand the family context and, in particular, the parents response to their childs anxieties.

  • Teach parents to tolerate their own anxiety about their childs level of distress.

  • Use humor generously.

    According to the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, as many as 1 in 200 children and adolescents struggle with OCD, an anxiety disorder characterized by recurrent, intense obsessions and/or compulsions that cause severe discomfort and interfere with daily functioning. Compulsions are repetitive behaviors such as hand washing, counting, checking, or cleaning and they are often performed with the hope of preventing obsessive thoughts or making them go away. Performing these so-called rituals, however, provides only temporary relief, and not performing them can cause significant anxiety or distress and can interfere with a child's normal routine, academic functioning, social activities, or relationships.
