This presentation provides information regarding Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), including assessment, diagnosis, symptoms, and subtypes. Additionally, it gives in-depth information regarding Exposure Response Prevention, the evidence-based and "gold standard" treatment for OCD. Specifically, participants will learn what ERP looks like, how it effectively treats OCD, and the foundations of how to use ERP in treatment. Finally, case examples are provided to help attendees understand how to implement ERP effectively with clients.

Learning Objectives

  • Learn how to create a fear hierarchy and how to design and develop effective exposures and treatment plans for clients with OCD.
  • Structure a typical ERP session and how to provide flexible, yet evidence-based treatment within each session.
  • Review some of the most common difficulties new ERP therapists experience and how to troubleshoot these issues.
