Abstract

With a prevalence of about 2% obsessive-compulsive disorder is ranking among the most frequent psychiatric disorders in childhood and adolescence. The symptoms often lead to severe impairments in academic and social life, as well as to family conflicts. Despite the high efficacy of cognitive-behavioural and psychopharmacological interventions, the long-term course of the disorder is less favourable in a significant number of patients. A profound knowledge of the disorder is crucial to implement effective treatment strategies shortly after the onset of symptoms. This paper gives a review on juvenile obsessive-compulsive disorder and addresses issues of classification, epidemiology, symptoms, co-morbidity, diagnostics, aetiology, treatment strategies and the course of the disorder.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
