Lyn, thanks so much for your response. I definitely will be finding someone who specializes on BCT for OCD. Right now I am just dong as much research as possible on the subject. You are right about the illnesses effecting my son. He gets very concerned if I just get a cold. He does worry about my health and that I will die. We try to combat this worry in every way possible. He was also abused recently by an older boy, and that just came out in August. He had been getting therapy for that and I am not happy at all with the level of competence in that area. I just emailed the school psychologist for a referral in someone who specialized in OCD b/c that is what it seems like he has. Is it common for the compulsions to change. For a few weeks is was persistent washing...now I can't hardly get him to shower. Lastnight, it was the closet and bathroom doors and the dresser and nightstand drawers. Sometimes it's an unnatural fear of being outside in the dark, even if his parent's are around. (other times dark is fine) Anyway, it seems he'll get stuck on one thing for a while and then move on to something else.
