Promoting OCD Wellness and Resilience (POWER)
Researchers at Baylor College of Medicine are starting a new study on the treatment of pediatric OCD. The purpose is to examine whether cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) can be helpful for children with OCD (7 to 17 years old) to discontinue their medication without relapse over 24 weeks. The study offers free online CBT sessions across 12-18 weeks with trained study therapists in addition to medication management. Eligible participants will also complete a total of four assessments.
LATINO (The Latin American Trans-Ancestry Initiative for OCD genomics)
Researchers at Baylor College of Medicine in collaboration with the University of North Carolina and various collaborators across North and South America are conducting an international study looking at obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) in individuals of Latin American, Hispanic, and Brazilian decent ages 7-89. OCD is a complex disorder involving intrusive thoughts which leads to unwanted, repetitive behaviors that can cause distress for the person experiencing the symptoms. The Latin American Trans-Ancestry Initiative for OCD genomics (LATINO) aims to better understand OCD in Latino, Hispanic, and Brazilian people as well as to increase the diversity of OCD genetic databases. The increased knowledge will further advance our ability to detect, diagnose, and treat individuals of Latino ancestry.
Eligible participants will complete a set of questionnaires, participate in a session to assess OCD symptoms, and provide a spit (saliva) sample to gather genetic information. Participants will be provided with a saliva collection kit (with instructions).
