Beat Buster is a completely customizable game that is intended to help children diagnosed with OCD to engage in role-playing as part of the therapeutic process to help them boss back their OCD and take control of their lives.
It takes the anxiety out of the therapeutic process and makes this part of therapy for OCD fun. This post contains affiliate links.
Beat Buster is much more than just teaching your child to say no to their OCD and to not give into their compulsions. It’s a chance for you and your child to actually sit down and discuss their compulsions, what the obsessions are behind them that drives them to listen to the OCD and perform the compulsions.
It gives your child the chance to learn to say no, be quiet, you are not my boss and much more to their OCD. And most importantly, this game is designed so that the child wins, reinforcing the idea that if they fight their OCD, they will beat the OCD.
Created by a mom for her son, you can read her full story and how this game came to be to help her son with OCD.
