"Do you want to beat, control and defeat OCD? Dr. Taylor shows how children and teens can do exactly that. Her optimism for their recovery shines through as she demonstrates how they can take on the 'OCD Trickster' and eliminate the OCD symptoms that disrupt their lives. Using the metaphor of a 'fear rocket' for how obsessions and compulsions skyrocket out of control, she teaches how to ride it 'to a safe landing,' by managing the fear that drives OCD. With vivid examples of symptoms such as checking, scary thoughts and contamination, Dr. Taylor describes the ABCD's of eliminating them, providing easy-to-use worksheets for effective exposure and response prevention plans. This is a must-read for anyone who wants to help the young people in their lives recover from OCD!" -- Margaret Wehrenberg, PhD, Author of The 10 Best-Ever Anxiety Treatment Techniques

"I'm so pleased that Christina has written this wonderful book. With her extensive experience treating folks with OCD, Christina is well respected by experts in the field and most importantly by those whom she treats for this difficult illness. This book with its easy to follow concepts, illustrations and charts, will be so helpful to many people. Behavior therapy techniques help many feel more in control of their symptoms and their lives, and Christina has made these techniques accessible in her book. It is sure to become a resource for them to continually refer to over time." --Suzanne Wasylink, RN-BC, Yale OCD Research Clinic

"Dr. Taylor has surely written one of the more comprehensive books for childhood OCD. It is a welcome addition to an area that still lacks adequate materials. It is chock full of helpful and proven approaches and materials, and I'm sure that it will be of great help to the many clinicians, parents, and children out there who do their best each day to cope with this serious and chronic problem." --Fred Penzel, PhD, Licensed Psychologist and Executive Director of Western Suffolk Psychological Services

"Dr. Taylor's well researched and sensitively written workbook on Obsessive Compulsive Disorder has elevated the dialogue and extended the knowledge about this challenging disorder. The integration of the current information on both theory and treatment means that clients and clinicians alike can now improve recovery and management of OCD. The many new strategies and treatment options for clients will dispel the myths about OCD and reduce the worry that families and clinicians experience when trying to be of help to those affected. It's comprehensive and of value to clients, families, and clinicians. It's engaging and optimistic in its presentation, so it is easy to read and understand. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to be a better therapist, support person, or friend to those impacted by this condition." -- Ruth M Grant, PhD, Sacred Heart University

"Christina J Taylor's OCD: A Workbook for Clinicians, Children & Teens will be professionals' newest go-to workbook for treating OCD, and is an ideal resource for children, adolescents and their parents. What' s new about this workbook is the content, description and treatment of the obsessional aspects of OCD. The rhythm of the text and the clever worksheets carry the reader along in learning how to take Actions to Beat, Control & Defeat OCD." -- Diane E Cholomskas, PhD, Psychologist, Center of Anxiety Disorders & Phobias, Volunteer Faculty, Yale Unversity School of Medicine

"Dr. Taylor's OCE workbook is exceptionally well written and thorough, explaining the wide and varied symptoms of OCD and how the disorder affects daily life as a child or teen. This book is a timely resource for parents and caregivers and allows children and teens to actively manage symptoms and improve their quality of life. It provides the framework and support that families need to beat, control and defeat OCD, no matter how daunting the task may be. The worksheets are invaluable and allow clinicians and families to develop a plan that can be implemented gradually and steadily. This ensures that strength is gained, success are attained and that the team works together to defeat OCD. As a parent of a young adult with OCD, I highly recommend this book." --Susan Schuster, PT, DPT, President of OCD Connecticut

"This is a wonderful book to help the afflicted, affected and treatment providers understand the complexityof OCD and its sub-types. Dr. Taylor's approach actively engages the OCD client in their own healing process. Her creative metaphor of the 'Fear Rocket' is a perfect visual imagery tool for the OCD client to utilize to gain control over their symmptoms. For treatment providers it offers a clear protocol of progessive steps to follow including addressing the nuances of the OCD sub-types. Dr. Taylor's inclusion of worksheets concretizes the treatment process which results in the client, treatment provider and significant others/systems having clarity about the goals to be accomplished. This is a must have text for all who suffer from or work with OCD and it will be in my bookshelf" -- Patricia Carl-Stannard, LCSW, Associate Professor of Social Work, Sacred Heart University, Practicing Psychotherapist
