Pediatric OCD Treatment Study: Augmentation of Partial Response

This was a treatment study for children and adolescents  (ages 7-17) with OCD, who still had symptoms after  pharmacological treatment with a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI). This study investigated the addition of CBT for those who partially responded to therapy with an SSRI alone.

Pediatric OCD Treatment Study: Cognitive-behavior therapy, sertraline, and their combination for children and adolescents with obsessive-compulsive disorder

This multi-site treatment study evaluated the effectiveness of CBT alone, selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) alone, and combined CBT and SSRI treatment for children and adolescents (ages 7-17) with OCD. Results showed that children and adolescents with OCD should begin treatment with CBT alone or a combination of CBT and an SSRI.
