Pediatric Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder

Dr. Noam Soreni

Reception to Follow in PAS Lounge

Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is a common and severe neuropsychiatric disorder, with a lifetime prevalence of between 1-2.5%.  The onset of OCD is usually during childhood and adolescence: more than 50% of adults with OCD report its onset occurring before the age of 18, and 70% before age 20=.  In children, OCD results in functional impairment in home, school and social settings. Clinical, genetic, cognitive and neuroimaging studies suggest that childhood onset is associated with increased severity of OCD and that OCD is associated with neurobiological abnormalities. With this in mind, the Pediatric OCD Team (POCT) was established as an early intervention, clinical research unit. This presentation will highlight ongoing studies at the unit that include: 1. Brain metabolism in pediatric OCD. 2. The study of perfectionism and hoarding in children and adolescents 3. Collaboration on the Province of Ontario Neurodevelopmental Disorders (POND) network.

Please join us for what promises to be an exciting talk!
