This episode Ask Stefanie interviews Dr. Eric Hollander about children who struggle with OCD.  OCD can often be confused with symptoms of other mental illnesses, including AD/HD and anxiety disorders.  It is important  for parents to know what OCD is, what are the symptoms, and what types of treatments are most effective.  We will discuss the differences between obsessions vs. compulsions, what OCD looks like in school and social situations, and how therapy and medication can be helpful when needed.  Importantly, we will also talk about when to know if its time to move to the next step and put your child on medication and what parents should consider when making that decision.  This is an incredible opportunity for parents to listen to one of the leading experts in the field of mental health.  
Dr. Eric Hollander is a Clinical Professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at Albert Einstein College of Medicine, The Director of Autism and Obsessive Compulsive Spectrum Program at Montifiore Medical Center, and the Director of Spectrum Neuroscience and Treatment Institute.
