Detailed Description:

Childhood onset OCD is a serious condition that may be a predictor of illness in adulthood. To date, no OCD psychotherapy trials have specifically focused on early childhood. Development of interventions for childhood onset OCD that address both developmental considerations and familial relationships is necessary.

Participants are randomly assigned to receive 12 sessions of either Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) or Relaxation Training (RT) over the course of 14 weeks. The CBT treatment is designed to lessen anxiety by addressing specific OCD symptoms. The relaxation intervention addresses generalized feelings of anxiety with the expectation that OCD symptoms may benefit indirectly. The clarity, completeness, acceptability, and feasibility of both interventions is assessed. A 3-month post-treatment follow-up is also conducted.
