  • School-Based Crime Prevention

    Schools have great potential as a locus for crime prevention. They provide regular access to students throughout the developmental years, and perhaps the only consistent access to large numbers of the most crime-prone young children in the early school years; they are staffed with individuals paid to help youth develop as healthy, happy, productive citizens; and the community usually supports schools' efforts to socialize youth. Many of the precursors of delinquent behavior are school-related and therefore likely to be amenable to change through school-based intervention.

  • Obsessive-Compulsive Foundation: What Is OCD?

    Worries, doubts, superstitious beliefs all are common in everyday life.

In OCD, it is as though the brain gets stuck on a particular thought or urge and just can't let go.
