Which Treatments Work for Pediatric OCD? Efficacy and Acceptability of CBT and Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors

In this Papers Podcast, Dr. Matti Cervin discusses his JCPP paper ‘Efficacy and acceptability of cognitive-behavioral therapy and serotonin reuptake inhibitors for pediatric obsessive-compulsive disorder: a network meta-analysis’ (https://doi.org/10.1111/jcpp.13934). Matti is the lead author of the paper.

There is an overview of the paper, methodology, key findings, and implications for practice.

Discussion points include:

  • The importance of examining efficacy and acceptability of cognitive-behavioural therapy and serotonin reuptake inhibitors in the context of the pediatric population.
  • The two domains of treatments that have an evidence base for paediatric obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) – cognitive-behavioural therapy and medication.
  • The difference between different forms of cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT) delivery – traditional in-person, remote CBT, and internet-delivered CBT.
  • Difference between in-person CBT and internet-delivered CBT.
  • Implications for policymakers and child and adolescent mental health professionals.

I work as a senior clinical psychologist within the child and adolescent mental health services in Skåne (Southern Sweden) and as an associate professor at Lund University. I lead a research unit within CAMHS where we conduct large-scale projects of broad relevance to the field of pediatric mental health. The main aims of my research are to better understand what causes and maintains psychopathology in children and young people and how to most efficiently allocate available healthcare resources. I have a special interest in obsessive-compulsive disorder and anxiety disorders.
