    'Grieve No More! Get This Book!!

    Every parent with a child that has OCD MUST read this book!! The sooner the better! After realizing my son had OCD I jumped on the internet only to feel sad and hopeless for my son's future. Thank goodness for Dr. Wagner's book! I read it cover to cover and put everything she suggested into play immediately!! Her book also gave me hope and made me realize I was a huge part of my son's recovery. Loaded with support, information and facts, this book became my 'OCD Bible' and made a huge impact on getting the OCD in control. We had a wonderful therpist but this book is what really helped my son and our family know what to do and how to take control. My son also read her book for children entitled 'Up and Down the Worry Hill' and I highly recommend that for your child as well. I now run a support group for parents of children with OCD and this book is #1 on my list. There IS hope and 'What to Do When Your Child Has OCD' is crucial in your journey! Thank you Dr. Wagner! You are wonderful!!

    A Wonderful Reference

    This was loaned to me during a time of crisis in my family, when my daughter was in the throes of full-throttle OCD. I was at a total loss as to what to do for her while we waited to see a specialist. This book gave me comfort, seeing that this was indeed treatable and something could be done to help my child. It also gives great examples of typical OCD behaviors, which helped me confirm what I was dealing with, and that it wasn't a death sentence. It kept me sane through those first weeks of total chaos!

    The BEST book to own as a parent of a child with OCD

    As a parent of a child with OCD it is possible to become 'compulsive' about trying to educate yourself about the illness to help your child. This book is a comprehensive guide that helps to ask and answer your questions. There are many books out there on the subject but this book is the BEST one.

    Excellent Resource for OCD Treatment in children and families

    Dr. Wagner has produced a guide for parents, living with OCD in their family, that is both easy to read and straight forward. Her style, found in all her publications, is written for the lay person as well as professionals. Dr. Wagner walks the reader through the various stages of diagnosis, treatment and follow up, in a way that demonstrates that Obessive-Compulsive Disorder is treatable. The focus of treating children with cognitive behavioral therapy provides the child and their family with the tools to empower themselves with strategies which will help them overcome OCD: deal with it on a daily basis, and in the future, if OCD once again interferes with their daily living, they will have gained the knowledge to recover more effeciently. I highly recommend any of Dr. Aureen Wagner's books to anyone interested in treatment of anxiety disorders, including Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder.

    This is a must have for every parent of a child with OCD

    This is the book I wish I had during the months we waited for our appointment with the specialist. Dr. Wagner leaves no stone unturned. In plain language she speaks to the many and complex concerns parents of children with OCD have -- always with this goal: to help minimize the impact of OCD on the child and family. The personal stories woven throughout the book help put a ¿face¿ on OCD that every family living with it will understand. I particularly appreciated Dr. Wagner¿s respectful and empathetic treatment of parents, also victims of this disorder, in the chapters ¿Parenting Challenges¿ and ¿Taking Care of Yourself.¿ This is an empowering book; one that continues to offer hope and help to parents beginning with that first suspicion that something¿s ¿not quite right.¿ I continue to use it as a valuable resource.

    An invaluable resource for parents of children with OCD

    This book is a must-have for parents AND clinicians alike. Dr. Wagner uses straightforward language to demystify both OCD in children and the ways cognitive-behavioral therapy works in treating this agonizing illness. She first helps to distinguish between rituals or obsessions that are developmentally normal vs. those that are disordered. Then she provides detailed, knowledgeable information on how to seek help, the types of therapies and medications that work, and what parents can do to assist their child in the recovery process. Most importantly, she gives an amazingly clear explanation of how the exposure and ritual prevention exercises of CBT work to dispel the rituals and reduce anxiety. And she provides compelling, and heartbreaking examples of the treatment in actual clients she has worked with. This book is clearly written by an expert clinician who exudes compassion, empathy and full understanding of the impact of OCD on the afflicted and their families. As a practicing psychologist, I routinely recommend this book (and the companion one for children, 'Up and Down the Worry Hill') to all my clients -- including adult clients -- who are suffering from OCD and anxiety.
