How should we choose treatment for children and adolescents with obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD)? Current American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry guidelines recommend cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) alone for those with milder symptoms, with consideration of serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SRIs) added to CBT for children with scores higher than 23 on the Children ’s Yale-Brown Obsessive Compulsive Scale (CYBOCS).1 The Pediatric OCD Treatment Study (POTS) found that “The rate of clinical remission for combined treatment was 53.6%, … for CBT alone, 39.3%, … for sertraline alone, 21...

AbstractCognitive vulnerability research has focused on cognitive variables that are hypothesized to confer risk to specific disorders within the mood and anxiety spectrum, while transdiagnostic research has emphasized common risk factors across disorders. The purpose of the present study was to test specific versus common cognitive predictors of treatment response across three treatment groups. Participants (N  = 373) with major depressive disorder (MDD; N = 187, panic disorder with/without agoraphobia (PD/A; N = 85), and obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD; N = 101) ...

Background: Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) is the first-choice intervention for obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD); however, a notable proportion of patients either do not respond to treatment or relapse after CBT. Mindfulness-based treatment has been suggested as an alternative or complementary therapeutic strategy for OCD. However, only a few studies have focused on its application in clinical samples. Objective: To evaluate the impact of a new treatment, called “Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy for OCD.” It is an 11-session manualized group intervention that integrates elements of CBT, mindfulne...

AbstractDigital interventions for anxiety disorders have been well-researched over the past two decades. However, reviews to date have focused on internet-based cognitive behavioural therapy (iCBT), whereas other psychological interventions have received less attention. The aim of this review was therefore to evaluate the effectiveness of digitally delivered psychological therapies (CBT, Attention Bias Modification, Exposure Therapy, Applied Relaxation, Bibliotherapy, Psychodynamic Therapy, Mindfulness, Behavioural Stress Management, Counselling) compared with control conditions and/or other psychological interventions for...

This study examined benchmarks of treatment response and clinical remission on the Obsessive Compulsive Inventory-Child Version (OCI-CV) for youth with obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). Participants were 91 youth who enrolled in a randomized controlled trial that examined the benefit of augmenting cognitive behavior therapy (CBT) with either d-cycloserine or placebo. Youth completed the OCI-CV at baseline, Week 4 (prior to initiating exposure therapy), and posttreatment. Receiver operator curve (ROC) analyses examined optimal benchmarks for treatment response and clinical remission as identified by independent evaluator...

Authors: Sharma LP, Reddy YCJ Abstract Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) and Obsessive Compulsive Symptoms (OCS) are known to be highly comorbid with bipolar disorder and schizophrenia. Comorbid OCD/OCS influences the course of schizophrenia and bipolar disorder. There is also some evidence to suggest that a diagnosis of OCD may be associated with elevated risk for later development of psychosis and bipolar disorder. Comorbid OCD/OCS is associated with a greater severity of schizophrenia phenotype and poorer prognosis. In addition, certain atypical antipsychotics, clozapine in particular are known to induce or wo...
