Obsessive behavior commonly includes washing, checking, lining up objects and ritualistic behavior. In many people with developmental disabilities it shades into other repetitive and anxiety-related behavior. This webinar will review the functional analysis and treatment of OCD and obsessional behavior, and other approaches, including psychopharmacology.
