This course was held on February 1, 2022


Stacey Dobrinsky, Ph.D., Director of Training In collaboration with Newport Healthcare

This presentation is the third in a series about Obsessive Compulsive Disorder and its treatment.

The goal of this presentation is to provide the participants with practical information and knowledge on how to improve their implementation of ERP, both within and between therapy sessions. It will focus on the nuances of treatment, and will include significant time spent on troubleshooting difficult situations and clients. Additionally, this presentation will present additional, evidence-based ways to “supercharge” ERP, including Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and inhibitory learning theories.
