Abstract

School psychologists have expertise in the realm of school-based assessment and intervention for behavioral, educational, and psychological difficulties. Recent evidence indicates that many school psychologists lack evidenced based knowledge about assessment and treatment of pediatric Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD). Pediatric OCD is a relatively common disorder that contributes to substantial impairment in educational and psychosocial domains. Evidence based treatment of pediatric OCD, particularly cognitive-behavioral therapy, has shown to be efficacious. Therefore, the aims of this paper are to provide a review of empirically established treatments for pediatric OCD, and present a school-based problem-solving model that school psychologists can utilize to conceptualize, assess, and treat OCD.
