The treatment of OCD in childhood has advanced greatly over the last decade from a state of stigmatising pessimism to heady optimism. There are many opportunities to extend our treatments to those who previously did not respond; for more effective and efficient treatment implementation; for disseminating effective treatments; and perhaps even early intervention and prevention. There seems now to be a real possibility that the work described in this book may have the effect of changing the epidemiology of OCD in children and young people. This chapter examines issues and future directions in childhood OCD.
