From Research to Clinical Practice: Family-Based Treatment for Children and Adolescents with OCD

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

Clinical research and treatment guidelines have repeatedly recommend including family in the treatment of pediatric OCD. However, translating this into clinical practice is often met with barriers. Despite these guidelines, many children are still treated individually without family involvement. Considering the long-term effects of OCD, disseminating family-based treatment models will help to bridge the gap between research and clinical practice. This panel, comprised of leading experts in pediatric and family OCD research/treatment, will highlight the latest research and challenges in working with the family system in pediatric OCD treatment. Each panelist will illustrate a particular therapeutic approach, then engage the audience in discussion. This will be a highly interactive experience to reflect on clinical dilemmas, bringing together experienced researchers and clinicians.
