Many providers have difficulty implementing exposure-based cognitive behavioral therapy for youth with anxiety and obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), despite it being the leading treatment for this condition. Exposure Therapy for Children with Anxiety and OCD: Clinician's Guide to Integrated Treatment provides a step-by-step framework for how providers apply exposure therapy in practice. The book begins with empirical support for the treatment followed by suggested implementation of exposures for specific conditions and ages. Tables of sample exposures and case illustrations are provided throughout the book and common challenges that may complicate implementation are addressed. Intended for busy providers to implement directly into practice, chapters provide clinical excerpts and illustrate techniques in an easy "how-to" format.

- Recommends how to implement exposure therapy treatment for anxiety and OCD
- Provides guidance on overcoming common challenges when implementing exposures in practice
