Treatment for Pediatric Obsessive Compulsive Disorder

The Pediatric OCD Program at Western Psychiatric in Pittsburgh, Pa., offers evaluations and two levels of care for children with OCD.

We use evidence-based therapies to provide specialized treatment regimens, including:

Group support

All program participants receive individualized treatment in a group setting, with a focus on developing both an understanding of, and ability to carry out, CBT with E/RP.

The children and adolescents in the program frequently act as a support system for one another, which enhances the effectiveness of the treatment.

Educational information

Participants, along with their parents and/or guardians, receive educational information about OCD and learn how to use CBT with E/RP to manage OCD symptoms outside of the program.
