Description:

This workshop will first review the clinical and diagnostic characteristics of Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder. Participants will be introduced to the rationale and effective implementation of cognitive-behavioral strategies based on the most recent research on the effective treatment of OCD. Specifically, participants will learn how to conduct a proper functional assessment, collaborate with clients in constructing relevant exposure hierarchies, implement appropriate exposure and response prevention (ERP) interventions, and identify and gradually eliminate safety behaviors. 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, as well as to address various unhealthy emotions that commonly co-occur with OCD (e.g., anger, depression, shame, etc.)

Learning objectives:

  • Participants will describe methods to successfully identify and diagnose Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder
  • Participants will demonstrate behavioral techniques (e.g, exposure and response prevention) that have been shown to significantly reduce various OCD symptoms and improve daily functioning.
  • Participants will explain effective cognitive strategies to address resistance, provide support and motivation, maximize the effectiveness of exposure and address comorbid emotional disturbance (e.g., anger, depression, shame, etc.)
