Serendipitously, shortly after completing my training, I got the opportunity to work with a family who were ideal candidates for SPACE. 9 Year old child with contamination OCD, parents engaged in extreme accommodation (brushing teeth for him, opening doors for him...), and child absolutely refused to have anything to do with therapy. Today was the preparatory session in which parents worked on the letter and prepared for possible child reactions. I’m hopeful, given the parents’ buy in and willingness to do anything at this point.
Tune in next week. Hopefully, I’ll have good news to report.
Hope to bump into some SPACE folk at ABCT this weekend.
