Complex cases in child/adolescent anxiety and OCD:
Addressing family factors that facilitate or inhibit treatment outcome
Lynne Siqueland, PhD
Friday November 8th
Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine
Evans Hall 327A/B
930am to 430pm
This workshop will focus on examples of complex case presentations in child and adolescent anxiety and OCD.   Complexity will be addressed both in clinical presentation (comorbid diagnoses, behavioral issues and parental anxiety or OCD) but also in the importance of incorporating work on parent coaching and family dynamics.  The research on family interactional patterns that improve or maintain anxiety will be briefly reviewed.   Descriptions of some of the targets of parent only treatments will be provided.  Finally, a number of detailed case examples of situations involving both clinical and family complexity will be provided to illustrate problem solving and decision making regarding timing and targets of intervention to improve clinical outcome.
