About the Book

Objectives. This study undertook a detailed characterization of a group of children displaying a condition termed "Obsessive Difficult Temperament" (ODT), and to establish bases for differentiation of those children from anxiety disordered non-ODT children. Participants were 67 children, 4 to 7 years of age (M = 5.88, SD = 0.88), referred to the Anxiety Disorders Clinic at a local children's hospital. Retrospective categorization of participants' temperament profile was undertaken. Parent rated questionnaires regarding child functioning, clinician assigned level of functional impairment and identified comorbid disorders were utilized to evaluate differences between ODT and non-ODT participants. Results. Participants with an ODT displayed a specific profile of temperament traits. They evidenced significant impairments in social functioning, presented with particular comorbid clinical disorders, and their parents reported elevated levels of parental stress, compared to non-ODT participants. Impaired psychological adjustment was differentially identified in mothers of ODT participants.
