Data from 176 youth with tic disorders, 93 control subjects, and 488 CAMS participants were included. Compared to youth with tic disorders, controls had lower total MA...

Anxiety is a common and impairing condition in youth with autism spectrum disorders (ASD). Evidence supports the use of cognitive behavioral therapy for treating anxiety in this population; however, available treatment protocols may be difficult to implement outside of research settings. The present study examined the efficacy of family-based exposure-focused treatment (FET) compared to a treatment as usual (TAU) control in 32 youth aged 6–17 years with ASD and co-occurring anxiety. Fourteen you...

The impact of externalizing comorbidity on treatment outcome was examined in 104 youth ages 7–16 (M = 11.09 years) with autism spectrum disorder and primary anxiety/obsessive compulsive disorder who completed modular cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) for anxiety/OCD. Three comorbidity profiles were utilized for group comparisons: participants with oppositional defiant or conduct disorder with attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ODD; CD; ADHD; group EXT, n = 25); those without ODD/CD and o...

Abstract This report investigated the improvement in Automatic and Focused styles of hair pulling among youth with trichotillomania (TTM). Youth with TTM (N = 40) participated in a clinical trial that compared habit reversal training (HRT) to treatment-as-usual (TAU). Participants completed a baseline assessment to characterize hair pulling severity, self-reported hair pulling styles, and co-occurring psychiatric conditions. Youth were randomly assigned to receive eight weekly sessions of HRT or...
