Freedom from OCD (Pediatric Group)
Navigating childhood with OCD can feel overwhelming at times. Children with OCD often report feeling alone and misunderstood. Approximately 1 in 40 adults in the United States will meet diagnostic criteria for obsessive-compulsive disorder during their lifetime and twenty-five percent of those with OCD will experience symptoms before age 14. Early intervention is important; however, many people with OCD suffer for years before receiving treatment.
Austin Anxiety and OCD Specialists is excited to offer a professionally led, skills building support group specifically designed for children with OCD. Group members will learn evidence-based skills for coping with OCD while having FUN alongside other children with OCD.
