A complex, puzzling disorder, obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) is characterized by a child's or teenager's obsessions with contamination, object hoarding, and exact orderliness and compulsions involving rituals of washing, cleaning, checking and rechecking, or counting. Childhood Obsessive Compulsive Disorder draws on the most up-to-date research available to provide a comprehensive overview of this problem, from diagnosis through treatment. Authors Greta Francis and Rod A. Gragg first describe childhood and adolescent OCD in its various forms and discuss the etiology and epidemiology of OCD. They also explore assessment methods and their usefulness in research and practice, and both pharmacological and psychosocial treatments. In addition, intriguing case examples of this enigmatic disorder, measurement scales for it, and a manual for cognitive-behavioral treatment make this book a vital guide for clinicians.

Discusses etiology, epidemiology, assessment methods/incl. case studies, measurement scales, & trmts.
