How to Use ACT to Help Kids with OCD with Dr. Patricia Zurita Ona

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.

Do you struggle to motivate your child with OCD to work on their issues. Learn how to use ACT to help motivate kids with OCD.


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.
