“McKenney, Simpson, and Stewart fill a critical gap in the field with this robust, well-crafted practitioner guide. This book distinguishes itself by its reliance on core principles of pediatric OCD treatment and its focus on how to most effectively include family members in treatment. The authors convey complex concepts with clarity and include extremely helpful downloadable materials. This book should be on the desk of every clinician who works with children with OCD.”

—Eric A. Storch, PhD, McIngvale Presidential Endowed Chair and Professor, Menninger Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, Baylor College of Medicine


“The availability of effective treatments for OCD continues to lag behind the number of people who need them. That is why this book is so important. McKenney, Simpson, and Stewart provide the information a therapist needs to competently diagnose, assess, and treat young OCD sufferers. The authors appropriately emphasize the core element of treatment—exposure and response prevention—but also offer guidance for how to promote treatment engagement, include parents effectively, overcome treatment obstacles, and much more. I highly recommend this practical and comprehensive book to any mental health professional interested in the rewarding work of treating children and adolescents with OCD.”

—C. Alec Pollard, PhD, Director, Center for OCD and Anxiety-Related Disorders, Saint Louis Behavioral Medicine Institute; Professor Emeritus of Family and Community Medicine, Saint Louis University School of Medicine


“This practical and easy-to-follow manual will give more therapists—and hence more children with OCD—access to the powerful techniques of CBT. The book leads therapists through a sequence of modules with an abundance of examples and scripts, along with insightful guidance on navigating common clinical challenges. The importance of partnering with both children and parents is emphasized. The reproducible handouts and worksheets help therapists implement this systematic approach and enable clients to participate actively in treatment. A valuable resource in the effort to make treatment more widely accessible!”

—Aureen Pinto Wagner, PhD, Director, The Anxiety Wellness Center, Cary, North Carolina


“A clinician who is invited into a family to help a child with OCD has a great responsibility not only to address the child's symptoms, but to repair the strain on the family as a whole. This book offers a comprehensive roadmap for meeting this responsibility. While providing a clear, structured protocol for doing effective treatment, the authors never lose sight of the key ingredient in maximizing results—creativity. The manual both affirms what I have been doing right in treatment of pediatric OCD and inspires me to offer families more. I will make this book required reading for anyone I train in this area.”

—Jon Hershfield, MFT, Director, The OCD and Anxiety Center of Greater Baltimore
