Did you know that people have brain sorters that keep their brains from getting cluttered with unnecessary thoughts? Sometimes these brain sorters get mixed up though and brains get clogged with thoughts that really bother kids.

If that has happened to you, if it’s hard for you to feel safe or sure of yourself because certain thoughts have gotten stuck, this book is for you.

What To Do When Your Brain Gets Stuck guides children and their parents through the cognitive-behavioral techniques used to treat obsessive-compulsive disorder. This interactive self-help book turns kids into super-sleuths who can recognise and more appropriately respond to OCD’s tricks.

With engaging examples, activities and step-by-step instructions, it helps children master the skills needed to break free from OCD’s sticky thoughts and urges, and live happier lives. This What-to-Do Guide is the complete resource for educating, motivating and empowering children to work toward change.
