Family Accommodation in Childhood OCD and Anxiety Disorders

Many families and parents of children with obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) tend to accommodate their children's symptoms by helping facilitate their compulsions or avoidance behaviors or providing reassurance for their anxiety. However, this type of family accommodation is strongly associated with poorer treatment outcomes. It is important for a child's treatment that family accommodation is addressed and reduced. This presentation will describe the various ways in which families may accommodate their child's OCD symptoms and provide tools to assist with managing the family's behaviors to best support the child's treatment.
