Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

There are therapists, psychiatrists, psychologists, health specialists and counselors who are trained to give and practice cognitive behavior therapies to cure the obsessions and compulsions of an OCD patient. Behavior therapist can be applied by having a start with an interview and an interrogation on the family members and friends of the patient. There is some information that are necessary to be acquired to keep as records and to serve as basis on the future improvements of the patient. The therapist might start by just getting to know the child and parents. The therapist might ask about favorite activities or TV shows, pets or hobbies, or particular sports. These information includes their likes and dislikes, hobbies, foods they would prefer, sports where they involve themselves and their favorite television shows and pets.

Children having Obsessive and Compulsive Disorder and are having Behavioral Therapy are taught on how to deal and manage their obsessions and compulsions without performing some actions or rituals on it. Children may at first find it very difficult to get away on their recurring and persistent thoughts and actions but as the behavior therapy continues they eventually learn on how to cope with their disorder. Behavior therapy also gives children the bravery and strength to fight their symptoms.

Children under behavior therapy are taught of various techniques and ways with regard to their disorder. After such, they are then taught on how to apply them on different situations where and when their symptoms may attack. Therapists believe in the adage stating that practice makes perfect. The latter statement brings hope to the children and their parents that the disorder is not a lifelong illness but instead will eventually be cured if observance of the recommendations of the doctors addressing the symptoms of compulsions and obsessions will be keenly followed.

Children diagnosed with OCD are treated once to thrice a week for the first months. After which, improvements on the condition are assessed and the next steps to be applied to the patient are carefully studied. Best results are found on 6months to 2 years of constant treatment of the disorder.

Behavior therapy must be accompanied with the help, support and motivation of the family members and friends of the OCD patient. Children with Obsessive and Compulsive Disorder undergoing Behavior Therapy usually feel relief upon the ease of their OCD symptoms. Undergoing on this kind of therapy can greatly affect an OCD child.
