Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Pediatric Obsessive Compulsive Disorder

UPMC Content 2

Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) emphasizes the important role of thinking in how we feel and act. It's based on the premise that our thoughts influence our emotions and behavior, rather than external situations.

The Pediatric OCD Program uses CBT to help children and adolescents:

  • Examine distortions in thinking that are unrealistic and unhelpful.
  • Identify, challenge, and modify automatic negative thoughts and beliefs that are problematic.
  • Learn new, more helpful ways of responding to difficult situations and problems.
