Paedophile OCD (POCD) Resources

Last edited 21 July 2021

Paedophile obsessive-compulsive disorder (POCD), also called MAP-related OCD, is an anxiety disorder that revolves around a persistent fear/obsession of oneself being a paedophile. POCD can be treated by a medical or mental-healthcare professional trained in treating anxiety disorders, eg, a general practitioner (GP) or a specialist such as a psychiatrist or psychologist. This article is not medical advice.

Be mindful that these resources are not for MAPs. They are for people with POCD. Because of this, these resources may contain narratives that are anti-MAP and potentially even harmful to MAPs. Use these resources at your own discretion. If you know of any resources that you believe should be added to this list, please contact us!
