Helping Girls With Obsessive Compulsive Disorder

Obsessive Compulsive Disorder in Teenage Girls

OCDWe can help your daughter as she deals with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, an anxiety disorder characterized by unwelcome and continual thoughts, feelings, ideas and sensations.

Her nonstop cycle of unwanted thoughts (obsessions) leads to attempts to defuse them by engaging in compulsive actions. Even though she will know that the thoughts or behaviors are disproportionate, she will get only fleeting reprieve by performing the compulsive behaviors.

This can be even more anxiety-producing, with fear of germs, illness disease, mistakes, insistence on symmetry or precision, undesired urges to hurt someone, or unacceptable sexual thoughts.

Her usual compulsions may be excessively ritualistic, like repeatedly counting or saying specific words, repetition of everyday activities (in/out of a doorway, turning on/off the stove, open/closing a drawer), hoarding (especially items with no visible value), consumption of foods in a precise order.

*Note: while sometimes used interchangeably, OCD is not to be confused with OCPD, or Obsessive Compulsive Personality Disorder. An OCD sufferer has unwanted thoughts and understands they are senseless, while an OCPD sufferer believes her thinking to be appropriate and natural.
