No one wants to get rid of obsessive-compulsive disorder more than someone who has it. That's why Talking Back to OCD puts kids and teens in charge. Dr. John March's eight-step program has already helped thousands of young people show the disorder that it doesn't call the shots--they do. This uniquely designed volume is really two books in one. Each chapter begins with a section that helps young readers zero in on specific problems and develop skills they can use to tune out obsessions and resist compulsions. Dr. March demonstrates how to: *Create a nickname for the illness to remember that OCD isn't you *Make a symptom chart so you can plan when and where to start talking back *Break the disorder's rules about the rituals The pages that follow the instructions for kids and teens show their parents how to be supportive without getting in the way, including tips for: *Separating the OCD from your son or daughter *Asking your child's permission to stop helping with rituals *Offering praise without imposing expectations After just a few months' practice, your family will get back to spending time on things that matter, instead of following pointless orders from the illness. The next time OCD butts in, you'll be prepared to boss back--and show an unwelcome visitor to the door. Association for Behavioral and Cognitive Therapies (ABCT) Self-Help Book of Merit

Reviews

'Dr. March is a world expert on helping young people recover from OCD. In this much-needed book, he shares his wealth of knowledge and experience with parents and children. Full of practical tips and examples for families, the book helps the child take charge while showing parents how to support the recovery process. Dr. March tackles the bewilderment and isolation felt by so many families, highlighting the fact that OCD is nobody's fault and emphasizing that recovery is possible. I am looking forward to using this accessible book with the families I treat.' - Isobel Heyman, Consultant Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist, OCD Clinic for Young People, Maudsley Hospital, London, UK 'An excellent example of how research findings and first-rate clinical applications can be conveyed in an extremely reader-friendly fashion. The book, which provides sage guidance for both parents and youth, is highly informed and well written. Dr. March has succeeded in providing a valuable resource and clinical tool.' - Philip C. Kendall, PhD, Laura H. Carnell Professor of Psychology, Temple University, USA 'As a mother of a son with OCD and President of the Obsessive Compulsive Foundation, I highly recommend this book for parents and their children with mild to moderate OCD. Dr. March provides detailed steps that can empower a young person to battle obsessive/n-/compulsive disorder. The strong personal vignettes will help parents finally begin to understand the obsessions and compulsions that drive their child or teen to perform exhausting rituals.' - Joy Kant 'The book is well written, well researched and simply laid out, and the author's passion for 'bossing back' OCD is evident throughout... It provides a major boost to our understanding of this condition and the importance of early intervention.' - Mike Lehane, Nursing Standard
