Book Overview

This Description may be from another edition of this product.

Fourteen-year-old Eric is plagued by thoughts that germs on his hands could be making his family sick. Kelly, age 8, feels distressed if she can't count her pencils in multiples of four. No one wants to get rid of OCD more than they do - that's why Talking Back to OCD puts the power to beat obsessions and compulsions in their hands. This uniquely designed volume is really two books in one. The first portion of each chapter teaches children and adolescents skills they can use to take charge of the illness. Instructions that follow show their parents how to provide encouragement and support. Based on the most effective known treatment for OCD, the book demonstrates ways to boss back when OCD butts in, enabling many youngsters and teens to eliminate their symptoms entirely. Early-onset OCD is as common as diabetes; this powerful book will help thousands of young people show this unwelcome visitor to the door.

   Two stars
Things she did not have issues with before were now a potential problem. This was recommended to me, however I would not recommend this book for a 1314 year old with OCD. Self-help is difficult as it is and this book does not help.
   Easy to read/appealing to young people
The book was recommended to me by my son's therapist. It is an accessible approach to dealing with OCD using cognitive behavioral therapy. My son and I are only step 1 right now, so I can 't speak to the program's ultimate efficacy for us, but my son liked the sound of the program and feels hopeful that it can help him manage or eliminate OCD. I do wish the book came with some companion online resources like the OCD maps and charts that are featured in the book. My son, who is 10, particularly liked case studies and testimonials by other children. I think they helped him to feel more normal. The point is to externalize it, and this seems effective for my son.
   Great book for OCD and anxiety
We bought this book for our 7 - year old daughter, who suffers from intimidating thoughts and anxiety about being late, among other things. It uses a behavioral therapy that really works and helps parents to feel empowered to fight OCD thoughts-controls. It also helps your child feel like they are not alone and you can deal even with the scariest thoughts or repeative behavior. The exercises are clear and easy to follow. The fight against anxietyOCD is time-consuming, but worth every effort.
   Good resource
This for my 8 year old daughter, who recently discovered that she was battling OCD. Her psychologist recommended it and has some good techniques and exercises for her and us to work together. As a parent can tell you, sometimes the insignificant things or the seemingly silly things can become a breakthrough, so that some parts of the book did not seem to work for others, and that is what matters.
   Must-Have Book!
This book is easy to read and helped me and my husband understand the OCD of my son. I wish I would have read this book several years ago, but am very glad that I have it now.
   Yikes! This book really needed a decent editor!
Here I think there is probably some helpful information, but the book is so poorly organized and the passages are so repetitive that it is a chore to get through. I lost the count! The same or similar information appears in nearly every chapter, making it a real chore to walk through. It is really a shame because there is certainly some gold here, but why not make a reader dig for the nuggets?
   Great book
This book is very helpful in explaining OCD to parents and giving great suggestions on how to support children with OCD. The steps presented are a bit rigid and do not need to be so in practice. But the overall guide, with the steps as goals, are evidence-based practice and the author breaks it down in a way that is easy to understand.
   This book was recommended to me/my daughter to read to help with OCD ...
This book was recommended to memy daughter to read this book to help with OCD thoughts. I read it, but think it is a bit above her head. I have been able to explain a few of the basic concepts, but I recommend 8+ for 8+. It is separated into 12 sections.
