Child Mind Institute Intensive OCD Program
The Child Mind Institute’s Intensive OCD Program helps children and teens struggling with OCD make significant progress in a short period of time. Led by Jerry Bubrick, PhD, a nationally recognized expert in the treatment of OCD, the program makes evidence-based care available to children and their families in an intensive outpatient format. This immersive approach enables most children to improve noticeably within four weeks and, in some cases, helps avoid hospitalization.
You may wish to consider intensive treatment if:
• Symptoms are seriously interfering with school performance, family life and friendships
• You have already been to multiple treatment providers without making significant progress
• You live in an area lacking treatment options
Dr. Bubrick is directly involved in every child’s treatment, providing an initial diagnostic evaluation, overseeing and participating in exposure therapy and meeting with parents weekly to discuss progress and homework. Dr. Bubrick works with a team of talented clinicians with expertise in the treatment of OCD. Samantha Birkenholz, our behavioral technician, works individually with each child, providing exposure therapy, and meets daily with parents.
