Understanding and Treating Obsessive Compulsive Disorder

Go Back

 



This workshop is suitable for all those who are interested in working with patients suffering from Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. It reviews the assessment of OCD as well as evidence-based interventions such as psychoeducation, cognitive strategies, mindfulness, exposure and response prevention. We will focus on the integration of different treatment strategies for the different types of OCD symptoms (e.g., repugnant obsessions and related compulsions, contamination fears, checking, mental rituals, ordering rituals, etc.). The impact of common comorbidities, strategies to address treatment non-adherence as well as relapse prevention will also be discussed.

Learning objectives:

• How to assess cognitive domains and symptom subtypes in OCD

• How to develop a personalized cognitive behavioral model with their OCD patients

• How to tailor exposure and response prevention exercises, mindfulness skills and various cognitive strategies (e.g., continuum technique, responsibility pie, taking another’s perspective, etc.) to different OCD symptom subtypes

• How to address pitfalls in treatment (reassurance seeking, low motivation)

• How to prevent relapse
