About this title:

Synopsis: If you're a parent of one of the more than one million children in this country with obsessive-compulsive disorder, you know how confusing, even frightening, the symptoms of OCD can be. You're terrified of losing your child and angry about the havoc this disorder has wreaked in your family. More than anything, you want to be able to unlock the secrets of OCD, understand the cause of your child's bizarre symptoms, and help your child break free of these disruptive, relentless thoughts and actions.

In her landmark book, Freeing Your Child from Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, Dr.  Tamar E. Chansky creates a clear road map to understanding and overcoming OCD based on her successful practice treating hundreds of children and teenagers with this disorder. In Part I, Dr. Chansky "cracks the code" of the peculiar rules and customs of OCD -- the handwashing, tapping, counting, and so forth. She explains how OCD is diagnosed, how to find the right therapist partner, and how to tailor treatment options to your child's needs. You'll learn how powerful behavioral modification can be and when medication can help. In Part II, you'll learn how not to be pulled in by your child's debilitating rituals at home or at school, how to talk to your child about the "brain tricks" OCD causes, and how to create an effective OCD battle plan that will empower your child to "boss back" the OCD monster. You'll also learn how to cope in moments of crisis.

Part III offers specific advice for how to help your child handle the most common manifestations of OCD such as fears of contamination, checking, getting things "just right," intrusive thoughts, and more. Part IV is an indispensable guide to additional resources, including books, videos, organizations, and websites.

Filled with Dr. Chansky's compassionate advice and inspiring words from the many children with OCD whom she has helped, this book  will be your lifeline. Battling back from OCD is hard work, but with the comprehensive, proven guidance in this book, you can help your child reclaim a life free from its grip.

From the Back Cover: (THESE QUOTES ARE FROM BACK COVERS OF TWO EDITIONS OF THIS BOOK)

"Anyone in need of profoundly useful information and expert practical advice on how to help a child afflicted with obsessive-compulsive behaviors would be wise to delve deeply in the pages of this book. Dr. Chansky has accomplished a tour de force, which is certain to offer much-needed assistance both to children with OCD-related problems and to their families." -- Jeffrey M. Schwartz, M.D., Author of Brain Lock: Free Yourself from Obsessive-Compulsive Behavior and A Return of Innocence

"A comprehensive resource no parent of a child with OCD should be without. Dr. Chansky's experience as founder and director of the Children's Center for OCD and Anxiety shines through every page."--Bruce M. Hyman, Ph.D., and Cherry Pedrick, R.N. Authors of The OCD Workbook

"Dr. Chansky vividly describes this puzzling and mysterious illness, which can devastate children and entire families. After reading this book, parents of a child with OCD will be armed with the information they need to get their child well as soon as possible."-- Michael A. Jenike, M.D., Professor of Psychiatry, Harvard Medical School and Chairman, OC Foundation Scientific Advisory Board

"It should be a law that whenever a therapist diagnoses a child with OCD, he or she has to give the parents a copy of Chansky's Freeing Your Child from Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder."-- Patricia Perkins-Doyle, President, Obsessive-Compulsive Foundation

"If you have a child with OCD, or are in any way interested in how to help a person handle this beguiling condition, then Tamar Chansky's book is a must. You will find on these pages the rare combination of hard-earned knowledge, gracefully presented... all interested in how to practically apply what we have learned lately about the mind and the brain will love what they find in this wonderfully rich yet concise exposition."-- Edward Hallowell, M.D., author of Connect, Worry, and Driven to Distraction
