A truly remarkable guide for parents, clinicians and school personnel.  Expertly written and organized, it does an excellent job of demystifying childhood OCD and provides clear and compassionate guidelines to parents for managing the impact of OCD.

The American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry (2012), Practice Parameter for the Assessment and Treatment of Children and Adolescents with Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder

Every parent of a child with OCD should read this book.  I will recommend it from now on.  It is written in a very user-friendly manner, and the suggestions, advice and information are just what parents need to know.

This excellent book could not be more timely considering the recent highly stressful events in our country.

Another masterpiece on anxiety in children and adolescents—this time covering all anxiety disorders.  Her writing is so clear and her guidance so practical, that this is the book every school must have and every parent of a child with anxiety should read and reread.

We think our approach is unique.

Using our resources, the child, parent or caregiver, and mental health professional can approach the treatment process from the very start of care with the same basic method. Individually, each resource works great; together, they are even better.
