Treatment of OCD in Young Children

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

Research shows that young children with OCD respond well to ERP treatment. However, protocols must be adapted to meet their developmental needs and address interconnectedness to the family. We will review common symptom presentations at this age and discuss how to assess and treat the disorder. Attention will be given to adaptation of therapy materials, management of oppositional behavior, use of motivational techniques, family involvement in treatment, pharmacological treatments, and PANDAS/PANS. Examples will be included to show how to implement high fidelity, child-friendly interventions.
