Following the model of Janet Price and Jennifer Engel Fisher’s Take Control of Asperger’s Syndrome (2010), Zucker—a psychologist experienced in treating anxiety disorders—addresses affected young readers directly and offers a structured set of self-help strategies for coping with diagnosed obsessive-compulsive behavior. Suggesting that the chapters be read in order for best results, she opens with a nontechnical explanation of the disorder’s genetic and neurological roots, then goes on to discuss creating written behavioral “ladders,” using relaxation techniques effectively, building self-awareness, handling uncertainty, and managing stress. The author systematically recaps her main facts and points in each chapter with bulleted lists and closing summaries, and she adds brief quotes and case studies from her own practice, claiming that the widely embraced “Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy” she outlines here is a proven blueprint for success in controlling OCD. Includes lists of organizations and multimedia resources. Grades 6-9. --John Peters

With all that being said, the book does have a lot of good information and a lot of it is written in a child friendly way. Some of it has too much textbook vocabulary. I am reading it aloud to my child so that I can skip over the inappropriate parts. She is enjoying what we are reading and really likes the examples of the other kids because it helps her to not feel so "different". And I really like the encouragement from the author to the child that they can beat OCD. I would say that it is more an informational book with some activities to practice CBT than an independent workbook. For that I prefer Free from OCD: A Workbook for Teens with Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (Instant Help Solutions)
I think using the two books together (of course, omitting the inappropriate parts in this one) is a good combo.
Definitely would not recommend it!
Should be much more straight forward and to the point for young people
Too expensive to ship to Canada via Amazon!!!
Very user and child friendly resource! I highly recommend!
