Zucker, a psychologist in private practice at the National Center for the Treatment of Phobias, Anxiety, and Depression, presents a guide for kids ages 10-16 with obsessive-compulsive disorder to help them take control of their disorder and be successful in school and life. She uses a cognitive-behavioral therapy method that involves gradual exposure to obsessive thinking patterns and teaches children to understand OCD, identify its triggers, develop a hierarchy to use in facing fears, learn relaxation and stress management strategies, deal with uncertainty, and challenge obsessive thoughts and repetitive worries. No index is provided.
