Case Western Reserve University Studies
Program, "OCD in Kids"
Treatment for Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD) is difficult enough for mature
adults. Young adults and even teenagers can also manage it with a pretty fair understanding
of what is required and why it takes the form it does. But what about young
children, especially pre-school and elementary age children? Parents face particularly
difficult challenges and must learn ways of dealing with an OCD child that
may seem counter-intuitive to them. How can they best support their child, and how
do treatment professionals address the needs of the very young? Noted child therapist
and author Natasha Daniels will join us via Skype from Arizona to answer these
questions for us. Parents, donít miss this timely and important program.
Join us on Sunday, Oct 28, 2018, 1:00 at Beaumont Hospital/Botsford Campus

We have talked about the website OCDchallenge.com before. This website offers an interactive
self-help program for those dealing with OCD, and is particularly useful for individuals who
cannot afford or do not have access to standard OCD treatment.
There used to be a
charge to use the site (which was very reasonable and affordable).
We have been told that the site is now COMPLETELY FREE, courtesy of the Peace of Mind
If you choose to try this
site, please let us know how you like it, if you think it is effective,
useful, or "do-able" for OCD sufferers. We'd like to hear from you.
Researchers at Case Western
Reserve University are conducting two online studies about
the relationships of individuals with OCD or hoarding. Each study involves completing
questionnaires online about relationships, emotions and OCD. You must be at least 18 to participate.
Those who participate may enter into a raffle for a Target gift card. The information gathered
from this study may help to improve therapies for OCD. For more information, visit their
