This concise publication about children with obsessive-compulsive disorder is written in easy-to-read and to understand terms. It is an overview of childhood OCD written for parents of OCD children. Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD) is a major psychiatric disorder affecting more than four million Americans. OCD is a strange and serious sickness of ritual and doubt run wild and is much more common than formerly believed. There may be more than one million Americans younger than 18 years of age with this disorder. OCD is also an adult illness. Between one-third and one-half of adult cases of OCD have their onset in childhood. Obsessions and compulsions vary in frequency and intensity. Many individuals have habits that cause minimal or no disruption in their lives. However, when the thoughts and rituals of OCD are intense, many aspects of the victim’s life disintegrate. With severe compulsions, endless rituals dominate each day. The most crippling obsessions create absurd, embarrassing or frightening thoughts that repeat in the mind in an endless loop. OCD appears to have some correlation with a number of other equally devastating disorders. There is evidence of a relationship with: • Other anxiety disorders • Tourette’s Syndrome (multiple motor tics and at least one vocal tic) • Trichotillomania (the compulsive urge to pull out – and sometimes eat – one's own hair) • Eating disorders and • Depression. Secretiveness appears to be associated with OCD. Very few sufferers ask for help or know that help is available. In recent years, OCD has received increased attention, due to the realization that it is both a serious and prevalent disorder. Researchers of OCD believe this disorder is a genetic problem, and effective treatment options are rapidly emerging. Early recognition and treatment of this disorder may prevent suffering, disruption of life and, perhaps, even deaths.
