Chapter 1 presents introductory information for therapists. This includes a discussion on childhood-onset obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) (its prevalence, symptoms, impairment, DSM-IV diagnostic criteria), the development of the treatment program and how it is tailored to young children, studies into the efficacy of cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) on OCD, exposure with response prevention (E/RP) techniques, the role of medications, and clinical considerations and adaptations (flexibility with younger children, timeframes, therapy process issues).
