Supporting OCD in Children
The Mind Monsters is a series of books and workshops designed to help parents and children understand and cope with OCD and anxiety.
Julie Derrick was inspired to write her books and workshops after supporting her daughter with OCD.
Her goal is to help parents, carers, teachers, and childcare professionals spot the early signs of OCD and anxiety in children before it takes hold and to raise awareness of CAMHS, Children and Adolescent Mental Health Services.
The author is donating 50% of profits made from her books to CAMHS.
Annabelle is a bubbly little girl who loves to play with her friends. Until one day something happens that makes her feel sad.
Leo is about to take a penalty shot, when Hank decides to start playing a counting game with him. Luckily Trixie the Treat Monster in on hand - and she has other plans.
Before supporting a child with OCD, it's essential to understand how OCD works. ..And to know how to tackle it without unintentionally making it worse.
Welcome to The OCD Workshop for Parents, where I share strategies and advice on how to tackle child OCD without feeding it.
"Drawing on her considerable experience of dealing with the condition and the insights she has gained through her own personal journey, Mrs Derrick has produced an excellent illustrated resource, replete with vignettes and practical tips, for families of children who may be experiencing the precursors or the early stages of an OCD."
