Hi there. You said you sought therapy for him...did he have an appointment yet? Most of my experience is with Pure-O OCD, i.e., irrational thinking. I don't have any experience with compulsive behaviors personally. I think they need to delve into why he feels the need to do this. Does it take some sort of anxiety away? Is it so all consuming that he has to do it even in situations where he could get caught? I think that is the key. Rest assured though that you are doing the right thing by your son. If you don't like the therapist or the answers you get, then definitely find another.
