One of the biggest struggles parents have is motivating their child to work on OCD. Who can blame them? Working on OCD can be extremely difficult and overwhelming. But, there is a tool in the toolbox that many parents haven’t explored – that’s ACT.

In this week’s episode on the AT Parenting Survival Podcast, I invited Dr. Patricia Zurita Ona (Dr. Z) on to talk to us about how we can use ACT to help kids with OCD.

She offers fun, creative ways to incorporate ACT principles into our exposures.

Dr. Z is the author of the new book, The ACT Workbook for Teens with OCD. She is also the author of Mind and Emotion. She is also the author of several other books including: Mind and Emotions: A Universal Treatment for Emotional Disorders, Escaping the Emotional Roller Coaster: Act for the Emotionally Sensitive and Parenting a Troubled Teen.
