Many children who have OCD may have suffered unnecessarily for years. Due to this, it is imperative to carry out a thorough assessment. Assessment will generally need to be completed with both the child and their parent or carer present, or important information is likely to be overlooked.

Identifying neutralising behaviours: questionnaire

This questionnaire is designed to assist child clients to identify their neutralising behaviours by comparing themselves to Joe, the main character in ‘Joe goes to OCD school’. The questionnaire covers 11 of the most common neutralising behaviour themes that are carried out by children with OCD. It can often be beneficial to complete this questionnaire with your client, offering further examples of behaviours that may be more specific to your client’s difficulties. This will help to draw out additional information. If answering some of these questions feels too threatening to your client, it can help to switch to a third person questioning approach, for example, asking: ‘Are there any other behaviours that you think Joe might carry out that are not on this list?’

Benefits of this assessment worksheet:

• Brings client’s awareness to the scale of the problems experienced.
• Helps to develop a problem list.
• Draws out intrusive thought content in a non-threatening way.
• Assists in the development of the therapist’s initial formulation.
• Useful for homework exercises.
• Can assist in the development of collaboration between therapist and client.
• Encourages the development of goal-based behaviour.
• Draws out information that can be useful in setting agendas.
