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

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule 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!
