Mayo Clinic researchers have helped advance obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) treatment techniques. Areas of research include:
- Continuing to study the effectiveness of a five-day intensive treatment program that makes treatment more accessible for children and their families
- Conducting brain imaging studies to gain a better understanding of the effects of treatment on brain structure and function in people with OCD
- Developing assessment procedures for anxiety
- Developing short-term treatments for childhood emotional and behavioral problems
