Description:

This workshop will first review clinical and diagnostic characteristics of Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder. Participants will be introduced to the rationale and effective implementation of cognitive and behavioral strategies based on the most recent research on effective treatment of OCD. Specifically, participants will learn how to conduct a proper functional assessment, collaborate with clients in constructing relevant exposure plans, and implement appropriate exposure and response prevention (ERP) interventions. Cognitive strategies based on Rational-Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT) principles will be integrated throughout the workshop as part of preparing for and maximizing the effectiveness of exposure therapy for OCD, as well to address various unhealthy negative emotions that commonly co-occur with OCD (e.g., anxiety, anger, depression, shame, etc.).  This workshop will be informed by up-to-date research on treating OCD during the COVID-19 pandemic and will address the unique challenges that clinicians may face when working with OCD clients during this time.

Learning objectives:

By the end of this workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Describe methods to successfully identify and diagnose Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder
  • Apply effective cognitive REBT strategies to address resistance, provide support and motivation, maximize effectiveness of exposure and address comorbid emotional disturbance (e.g., anger, depression, shame, etc.)
  • Utilize effective behavioral interventions (i.e., ERP) that have been shown to effectively treat OCD symptoms and improve daily functioning.
  • Plan interventions with consideration of COVID-19 challenges.
