"Haanusia Prithivi Raj has created a masterpiece in drafting a cognitive behavioral therapy oriented self-guided treatment protocol for pediatric obsessive-compulsive disorder. The writing is very clear and patient/family oriented, and appropriately harnesses the efficacy of exposure and ritual prevention in addressing this debilitating but very treatable condition. Beyond its focus on exposure based treatment elements, the manual is notable for including additional modules to help someone affected beat OCD and prevent a return of symptoms. This text will do much to advance access to care and belongs on the shelf of those who are affected by OCD, their family member, and will be a useful asset to practicing clinicians."
