This course was held on January 14, 2021


Stacey Dobrinsky, Ph.D., Director of Training

Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (“OCD”) is on the rise in our youth due, in part, to anxiety, isolation and concerns from the Covid-19 pandemic. This environment has triggered increased symptoms in adolescents with existing OCD symptoms and has brought on compulsive behaviors in new groups of youth. OCD is now one of the more common psychiatric disorders.

Learning Objectives

  • Attendees will be able to identify the common mistakes that therapists make when implementing ERP and how to correct them
  • Attendees will learn how to improve and “supercharge” treatment for clients who are treatment resistant or slow to respond to ERP
