Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Anxiety
Kid Power Camp
We are studying how a new intervention may reduce anxiety symptoms in preschool age children. Children ages 4-6 may be eligible to participate. Interactive games and activities are taught in a group setting. These games are meant to increase ability to regulate their behaviors and emotions.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD)
We are conducting research using Exposure-Response Prevention (ERP): a form of Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) for those with Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD). Eligible teens (13-17) and adults (25-45) will receive a diagnostic evaluation, 12 therapy sessions, and 2 fMRI scans, at no charge.
