|Description:||Family-based treatment for young children with OCD – Therapist Guide & Workbook provide step-by-step detailed procedures for assessing and treating specific problems and diagnoses. The therapist guide describes a cognitive-behavioural family intervention for obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) in young children (ages 5- 8). The guide gives instructions for incorporating parent involvement and tailoring sessions to the young child’s cognitive and socioemotional levels. Exposure with response prevention (E/RP) is the main component of treatment, wherein the child is exposed to the feared situation, and the usual response (i.e., the ritual or avoidance behaviour) is prevented until anxiety decreases. The corresponding workbook for families includes psychoeducation, review skills learned in therapy, and provide forms for homework.
This is part of the “Programs that Work” series that contain manuals and workbooks with step-by-step, detailed procedures for assessing and treating specific problems and diagnoses.
