PSP 279: How to help Your Child with OCD related to Contamination

OCD comes in many different shapes and flavors. One way it shows up is through the concept of “contamination.” Contamination means something different for each person who suffers from OCD, but they all have two things in common:

  1. Something/someone cannot be touched and should be avoided
  2. Contamination can spread from object to object, person to person (and even place to place)

In this week’s AT Parenting Survival Podcast I talk about how parents can help their kids work through contamination fears.
