Approximately one million children and adolescents in the US suffer from OCD. Research shows that one-third to one-half of OCD cases begin during childhood.

This book is a personalized guide you, the parent of a child with OCD, can use to understand the causes of the disorder and explore available treatments. Find out which techniques are most effective at controlling symptoms. This engaging workbook is full of assessments, fill-ins, and progress charts that encourage you to get involved and stay committed to your child's recovery.
