The Secret Problem: A book for children with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder



Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) in children

Approximately one or two percent of children and teenagers will suffer from this disorder. It is a hidden problem and those who have it are reluctant to talk about their symptoms; preferring, instead, to suffer in silence. For a child and for the child’s family OCD causes major disturbances, educational problems and a lot of misery. Much of this suffering is due to lack of knowledge and delays in getting help.

In “The Secret Problem”, OCD is explained in clear and simple language. Cartoons are used to help children, teenagers and their parents understand the problem and its treatment.

The book identifies OCD as a biological problem and clearly describes how the child and the child’s family are not to blame for its onset. Instead it describes how to fight the problem and bring the symptoms under control.

It is clearly established that, with modern treatments now available, the outlook for sufferers and their families is much brighter.
