  • Explain how to use ERP for all the OCD subtypes.

Workshop Description:

OCD is described by the World Health Organization as one of the most debilitating conditions in the world. Many clinicians state in their online profiles that they treat OCD, while most of them do not have any specialized training in OCD diagnosis or in the use of Exposure and Response Prevention therapy . To right this wrong, this talk will review what OCD is, how to go about making a diagnosis for OCD, and how to provide ERP for OCD. There will be a special focus on the various subtypes of OCD through case examples used for each of the common subtypes (Harm, Sexual Orientation, Relationship, Pedophilia, Perfectionism, and Contamination). The last part of this lecture will be case discussions from the participants of the talk. These will be discussed live, but please email the presenter an overview of the case ahead of time to get the discussion rolling. All case examples can be emailed to [email protected].
