Are you parenting a child experiencing symptoms of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder?

My name is Lauren Luckert and I am a doctoral student in Fordham University’s School Psychology Program. I am currently seeking parents/guardians of children (ages 8-17) who have been diagnosed with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), or who are experiencing symptoms consistent with an OCD diagnosis, to participate in my research study. The study will look at what it means to parent a child with obsessive-compulsive symptoms and the impact these symptoms have on the parent and family. The results will hopefully provide insight into more effective ways to help not only children who suffer from obsessive-compulsive symptoms, but their parents and family as well. Participation in the study requires the completion of an anonymous survey that takes approximately 30 minutes to complete and will ask questions regarding your child’s symptoms, your own feelings/reactions towards parenting your child, and how your family functions while having a member experiencing obsessive-compulsive symptoms.
For each completed survey, I will be donating $1 to the International OCD Foundation whose mission is to help all individuals with OCD and related disorders to live full and productive lives by increasing access to effective treatment, ending the stigma associated with mental health issues, and fostering a community for those affected by OCD and the professionals who treat them.
Your participation in this study is greatly appreciated and will provide invaluable information that may help the many individuals and families who live with OCD. In addition, participants will be provided with a list of resources and they will be given the option to receive a summary of the findings from the study. Thank you for your time and assistance!
