Getting kids, teens, and parents to actually engage in ERP can present numerous challenges for clinicians. The goal of this talk is to expand therapists’ tool boxes in helping children, teens, and families engage in the ERP work. Four experts who work with the toughest pediatric OCD cases will share their personal tools and tricks that they use to help overcome some of the resistance and challenges that can be inherent in ERP treatment. These strategies will encompass many of the salient domains of exposure work, including pre-planning strategies and tools, actual exposure work and time, post-processing of exposures, and increasing homework compliance and practice outside of therapy time.
