Ask the Experts: Frequently Asked Questions about OCD in Children and Adolescents

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Three psychologists and a psychiatrist who specialize in pediatric OCD will answer FAQ's like: What is ERP, how does it work, and how long will it take? What can I expect during treatment? How can I help my child through treatment? How do I handle meltdowns? Can I do CBT with my child on my own? What do we do when our child refuses therapy? My child can't finish homework – should we tell the school? How did my child get OCD? How do I know if medication is the right choice? My child's OCD has returned – are we back to square one? Will we be living with OCD for the rest of our lives?  Bring your questions to ask the experts!
