Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is a first line evidence-based treatment for Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD).
OCD is a complex condition with multiple features. Treatment success in OCD requires systematic and specific approaches with CBT. This workshop covers the current DSM classification of OCD and related disorders as well as theories and models explaining causation. Participants see an overview of all treatment options (including medications) for OCD.
Experience a step by step by step integrated and updated protocol for treatment of OCD with behavioural, cognitive and experiential techniques.
Enhance your learning through a skilled combination of brief presentations, demonstrations, group exercises and role play.
Hear about common pitfalls and tips for success in managing OCD. The information will also be useful in treating related conditions like Body Dysmorphic Disorder and Trichotillomania. You will leave with a well-rounded understanding of OCD and its treatment.
