Research Interests

  • Dr. Storch is the All Children’s Hospital Guild Endowed Chair and a Professor of Clinical Psychology in the Departments of Pediatrics, Psychiatry & Behavioral Neurosciences, and Psychology at the University of South Florida. Dr. Storch specializes in the cognitive behavioral treatment of adult and childhood obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), as well as other obsessive-compulsive spectrum disorders (e.g., trichotillomania, tic disorders, body dysmorphic disorder, skinpicking) and anxiety disorders. He also specializes in the treatment of anxiety in children with autism spectrum disorders.
  • Dr. Storch earned his B.A. in Psychology from Binghamton University, followed by his M.S., M.Phil., and Ph.D. degrees in Child-Clinical Psychology from Columbia University. He joined the Department of Pediatrics at the University of South Florida in 2008. Dr. Storch is a licensed clinical psychologist and serves as the Director of the University of South Florida OCD Program. As detailed below, he is conducting research in the areas of cognitive behavioral treatment for adult and childhood OCD, treatment augmentation, and treatment of obsessive-compulsive spectrum disorders and anxiety in children with autism.
  • Research and Scholarly Interests
  • Dr. Storch s primary research focus is on the treatment of adult and childhood OCD. He is particularly intrigued by the hypothesis that targeting specific neural receptors (e.g., NMDA) may facilitate extinction processes central to exposure-based psychotherapy. As many child and adults OCD patients continue to experience residual symptoms following treatment, remain treatment refractory, or have an adverse reaction to psychotropics, there is a great need for enhancing the effectiveness of extant psychotherapies. This research has been supported by NIH and NARSAD grants to Dr. Storch.
  • In addition to this interest, Dr. Storch s clinical research also focuses on treatment augmentation, both psychosocial and pharmacological, in pediatric and adult OCD patients. As many OCD patients do not have an adequate response to first-line treatments, studying evidenced-based augmentation approaches is highly warranted.
  • Dr. Storch is interested in studying alternative service delivery options for cognitive-behavioral therapy, as well as how behavioral treatment can be helpful for unique populations. Specific interests include examining the efficacy of telephone-based treatments, as well as applying behavioral interventions to treatment compulsive behaviors in varied developmental disabilities.
  • Finally, Dr. Storch has been conducting research on developing and evaluating the efficacy of behavioral interventions for children with autism spectrum disorders and co-occurring anxiety.
  • Dr. Storch has published over 300 peer-reviewed articles. He is the lead editor on 6 textbooks, and over 20 chapters. Dr. Storch has received grant funding from the National Institutes of Health, Centers for Disease Control, Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, NARSAD, International OCD Foundation, and numerous other foundations for his research on OCD and related topics.
