This book examines the early development of obsessive-compulsive disorder (which now affects over one million children and adolescents) and describes two effective treatments: behavior modification and drug treatment with clomipramine.

Based on research from the National Institute of Mental Health, this book's theoretical sections probe the frontiers of today's scientific understanding of this disorder and present information applicable to all age groups. Firsthand accounts from patients provide a depth of detail and clinical richness that will be greatly appreciated by all clinicians treating children and adolescents who have this disorder.
