OCD Treatment Study for Children Ages 8-14

Researchers at San Diego State University are enrolling families of children with OCD ages 8-14 in a study examining mechanisms of treatment response. Families will receive CBT at no cost. Families can inquire about the study here or can download our flyer for additional information.

Genetics of OCD Study

Research has shown that genes can make some people more likely than others to develop Obsessive Compulsive Disorder and Related Disorders (Hoarding Disorder, Body Dysmorphic Disorder, Hair Pulling Disorder/Trichotillomania, and Skin Picking Disorder/Excoriation Disorder). Researchers at the University of Southern California are trying to find these genes. Once these genes are identified, new and improved treatments may be possible. If you would like further information, or would like to participate, please visit keck.usc.edu/gpc-ocd or download flyer here.
