Eric A. Storch, PhD joins Joshua Honaker, MD to share his knowledge on obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) and the research surrounding it. Dr. Storch is currently a Professor, Vice Chair, and McIngvale Presidential Endowed Chair at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, TX. He is a clinical psychologist, researcher, writer, curriculum developer, and public speaker.

Many people are stumped by what causes OCD. Dr. Storch clarifies that OCD’s cause is unclear and that it is a multidetermined condition. It has to do with genetics, behavioral, and the way our brains operates and is wired.

Getting information about OCD and treatment out to parents is critical as there is currently not sufficient access to treatments that work. Educating people and making access easier is a focus of Dr. Storch’s, which has been aided by virtual technology. If you or a family member are looking for education and treatment options, you are not alone. You might have to reach out but there are people here to support you.
