OCD and Parenting

by Hugh F. Johnson, M.D., and Jay Fruehling, M.L.S.

Feb 1997
The Obsessive Compulsive Foundation has published this brief (28 pages) but very useful guide, OCD and Parenting, for parents of children with OCD (obsessive compulsive disorder). Written by treatment professionals, the text is user-friendly, in part because of its conversational question-and-answer format. The book includes a bibliography and lists additional resources. It is available from the OCD Foundation, P.O. Box 70, Milford, CT 06460- 0700. The price is $4 for non-foundation members.
