“Eschewing the session-by-session framework common to many treatment manuals, Franklin and colleagues utilize a clinically fluid approach to translate their decades of research into an incredibly valuable resource for practicing clinicians, clinical educators, and trainees. Highly accessible and engaging, the book not only provides detailed instructions for administering the treatment, but also helps clinicians navigate the unpredictable situations that invariably arise in child and family therapy. Replete with rich case examples, sample dialogues, and clinical pearls, this is an absolutely essential book for anyone working with youth suffering from OCD and their families.”

—John C. Piacentini, PhD, ABPP, Director, Childhood OCD, Anxiety, and Tic Disorders Program, UCLA Semel Institute for Neuroscience and Human Behavior

“A 'must-have' guide for any clinician who works with youth. It is based on the authors' thousands of hours of experience implementing the treatment, which can be used in any professional setting. Most importantly, the authors bring the treatment to life through invaluable case examples and detailed excerpts of dialogue with patients. Difficult clinical situations and their solutions are described, preparing the therapist to deal with typical dilemmas. I’m confident that this book will become as tattered and dog-eared as March and Mulle's earlier seminal volume.”

—Kevin D. Stark, PhD, Department of Educational Psychology, The University of Texas at Austin

“One of the great success stories in child and adolescent psychiatry has been the development of an effective treatment approach for OCD. This book continues to push progress in this area by giving clinicians a manual that enhances family engagement and can be used across multiple settings. It incorporates research and clinical advances gained over the past 20 years to present a nuanced person- and family-centered intervention framework. The authors provide a strong theoretical rationale for exposure-based treatment and use an effective climbing metaphor to describe an approach that is sensitive to the client’s progress and flexible to the needs of the setting. I found the chapter on involving families in treatment to be particularly impactful.”

—Douglas W. Woods, PhD, Department of Psychology, Marquette University

Treating OCD in Children and Adolescents skillfully presents the advancements in research and clinical practice that have amassed since the publication of March and Mulle’s classic 1998 work on the topic. This wise, reader-friendly book is an accessible tool for graduate student trainees, novice therapists, and OCD specialists alike. It is a theory-driven yet practical guide that exemplifies flexibility within fidelity, as illustrated by its focus on realistic therapist–client exchanges and common clinical challenges.”
