Cognitive Therapy Better Than Sertraline for Childhood Obsessive Compulsive Disorder

This latest study in JAMA shows that cognitive behavioral therapy was better than Sertraline for Childhood Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder. The best remissions were reported with cognitive therapy + sertraline. There are some remarkable results with cognitive therapy - it's clear we're just scratching the surface with our understanding of how we can drive our own circuitry. Brock is just finishing the Schwartz & Begley book The Mind and the Brain: Neuroplasticity and the Power of Mental Force and he's enjoying it. Pretty amazing seeing how cognitive therapy alone can correct some of the PET abnormalities of OCD patients.
