Julia Gottwald – Adolescent OCD

In episode 34 of The OCD Stories podcast I interviewed Julia Gottwald. Julia is a PhD student at Cambridge University and is researching adolescent OCD. Julia is a communicator for The Cambridge Neuroscience Society and was shortlisted for The Max Perutz Science Writing Award. Julia has co-authored a book called “Sex, lies and brain scans” which is due for release in 2017.

I chat with Julia about her research into adolescent OCD, memory, why low confidence and low self esteem can be a side effect of OCD. She expresses the need for patient centred treatment and treating adolescent OCD as a subtype, as adolescents show different results and markers from adults with OCD. Advice for parents with kids with OCD. This was a fun conversation, I learned a lot and I’m sure you will too. Enjoy.
