Obsessive Compulsive Disorder in children and adolescents is an often overlooked area, and assessment and treatment resources that correspond to current evidence-based medicine guidelines are often scarce. Youth with these problems often keep them to themselves; in public settings, they do not typically cause issues for those around them. The specialized nature of the assessment and treatment techniques often keeps them limited to delivery in specialty practices. Participants in this conference will learn to differentiate normal developmental obsessions and rituals from those associated with OCD. They will also be introduced to the basics of the cognitive behavioral model of assessment and treatment. Participants will be given opportunities to practice what they are learning in a few interactive exercises during the conference. Participants will also learn when more intensive treatment is warranted and what resources are available both locally and nationally for those cases. The role of concurrent medication management in these cases will also be presented.
