OCD in children and Teens
(Cape town, Pretoria, Durban and Jhb)

Not much research has been done on the functional impairments of children and adolescents with OCD. The few previous studies that have been done suggest that OCD-related functional impairment in childhood/adolescence may differ across cultures. Thus, there is a need to conduct a study of this sort in South Africa, as this will inform the future diagnosis and treatment of South African children and adolescents with OCD.

The University of Cape Town is conducting this study.The study requires the participation of the parent/s and the child/adolescent who has been diagnosed with OCD. The study involves two interviews and the completion of a questionnaire.

Participants will be paid R150. Information will be treated as confidential. If you would like to participate in the study or find out more about it, please contact these researchers in the UCT Department of Psychology: Dr. Kevin Thomas (021-6504608) or Lara Hoppe (0845010385 or This email address is being protected from spambots.
