OCD can become a big problem for children and their families. Compulsions and rituals can cause lots of anxiety and frustration for both children and parents alike. Compulsions and rituals can also prevent children from focusing on school work, sports and social time. They may begin to avoid school or socializing due to fears their OCD symptoms will be noticed. If your child is suffering from OCD, its important to know there is help.
Fortunately, there is effective, short-term treatment for OCD. At the Bay Area Center for Anxiety we use Exposure with Response Prevention, an effective form of treatment designed to help children overcome their obsessions and compulsions and return to living their life.
