Narrative of Services:

As Director of the MGH Pediatric OCD and Tourettes Syndrome Clinical and Research Program, my entire clinical and research career has been devoted to the study of pediatric OCD and related disorders, its phenotype, clinical correlates, familial patterns of inheritance, and treatment. I am the author of the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry current Practice Parameters for the Assessment and Treatment of OCD in Children and Adolescents. I have been the recipient of a career development award (NIMH 5K08 MH01481-05), am Principal Investigator of a current genetic study for OCD (NIMH RO1MH 079489), and have seen over a thousand pediatric patients with this disorder. As a result, I have carefully mapped the benefits and methods of currently available treatments for affected youth.
