The intensive program opened on April 29, 2013. The Pediatric Anxiety Research Clinic at the Bradley-Hasbro Research Center has been providing outpatient care for children and adolescents with OCD and OC spectrum disorders for 13 years. The program team includes a psychiatrist, three psychologists, a social worker, and four milieu therapists. The program’s directors all have extensive experience in research and implementation of evidence-based treatments for children and adolescents with OCD and other severe anxiety disorders.

The Pediatric Anxiety Research Clinic has been at the forefront of developing and testing treatments for pediatric OCD for more than a decade. It was one of the three sites (with University of Pennsylvania and Duke University) for the largest federally funded treatment outcome studies for youth with OCD – The Pediatric OCD Treatment Studies (POTS). The treatment used in this program is an extension of the treatments tested in those studies and as such has strong empirical support.
