Managing Anger in Children with OCD and Related Disorders

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Children and adolescents with OCD and related disorders often act out or react with anger to treatment. This can be difficult for parents to manage, and can lead to both treatment dropout and conflict at home. This workshop will present practical strategies that families can use to deal with children's anger. Topics covered will include managing tantrums, what to do when a child refuses to participate in treatment or school, how to handle suicide threats, and managing verbal and physical aggression towards others. Presenters will also help parents explore thoughts and feelings that may be holding them back from implementing effective strategies. This workshop will include discussion and role play as well as video.
