Does Your Child Struggle with Meta OCD: OCD Thoughts About OCD?
This video is for educational purposes only and is not intended to replace the guidance of a qualified professional.
OCD is like a difficult chess game and one of OCD’s best moves is Meta OCD. When our kids struggle with Meta OCD their intrusive thoughts are about OCD itself. There are many ways OCD can make them dizzy with thoughts about OCD:
Do I really have OCD?
What if I obsess about this and it becomes a new theme?
What if I get rid of OCD and then all these bad things happen?
What if I really want to do these things and it is not OCD?
What if my exposures are getting easier because I really like it?
What if my exposures are getting easier because I don’t have OCD?
The list can go on and on. In this week’s YouTube video, I talk to kids and teens about how OCD hooks you in with Meta OCD intrusive thoughts and how to avoid getting reeled in.
