When treating children and adolescents with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), one is faced with a unique set of challenges. OCD’s manifestation can be extremely varied, and can be confused with and affected by other behavioral health disorders, complicating initial diagnosis and treatment planning. Furthermore, developmental issues and family dynamics must be considered, particularly when working with children. Effective treatment must utilize a multimodal approach that targets individual and family needs, while also considering the domains in which OCD can be most disruptive for children, home and school. This presentation will outline how the WPIC Pediatric OCD Program addresses these needs, while providing an evidence-based treatment, exposure with response prevention. Discussion topics will include the heterogeneous presentation of OCD in children, differential diagnosis, psychotherapy approaches and the role of pharmacotherapy.
