About the Course:

This course is recommended for health care professionals, especially psychologists, counselors, social workers, and nurses who provide services to or seek knowledge of OCD and treatment interventions. Whether unfamiliar or familiar with some of the concepts involved in this material, you can benefit from information in this course. In her landmark book, Freeing Your Child from Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, Dr. Tamar E. Chansky creates a clear road map to understanding and overcoming OCD based on her successful practice treating hundreds of children and teenagers with this disorder. In Part I, Dr. Chansky “cracks the code” of the peculiar rules and customs of OCD — the hand-washing, tapping, counting, and so forth. She explains how OCD is diagnosed and how to tailor treatment options to a child’s needs. You’ll learn how powerful behavioral modification can be and when medication can help. In Part II, you’ll learn how to help parents not to be pulled in by their child’s debilitating rituals at home or at school, how they can talk to their child about the “brain tricks” OCD causes, and how to create an effective OCD battle plan that will empower a child to “boss back” the OCD monster.

Part III offers specific advice for how to help a child handle the most common manifestations of OCD such as fears of contamination, checking, getting things “just right,” intrusive thoughts, and more. Part IV is an indispensable guide to additional resources, including books, videos, organizations, and websites.
