Wednesday, November 4, Dr. Martin Franklin will present Treating OCD in Children and Adolescents: A Cognitive Behavioral Approach in FCP’s new Webinar format. Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) for pediatric obsessive-compulsive disorder has strong empirical support, yet poses unique challenges even to experienced therapists.

At the end of this activity, the learner will be able to:
- Describe the nature and diagnosis of pediatric OCD

- Summarize the rationale and clinical application of CBT of pediatric OCD
