Default Re: are you born with ocd?

Simpson, H. B. and Liebowitz, M. R. did a study into the effectiveness of CBT or medication (SSRIs) as monotherapies (i.e. not combined) in 2005. They found that for more severe cases of OCD a combination of both was appropriate.

March, J. S. found that CBP (cognitive behavioural psychotherapy) is effective as a monotherapy, or combined with medication, for the treatment of OCD in children and adolescents.

Watson, H. J. and Rees, C. S. found earlier this year that when treating under 19-year olds CBT and medication were effective forms of treatment. CBT had a greater effect size than medication.

EDIT
What does dubed mean?
As far as I can work out it isn't a proper word...
