This on-site training class is also available as Public Schedule Seminar.
Distinguish between OCD and "obsessiveness" found in similar disorders; treat OCD in patients of all ages through CBT, pharmacological and other methods; examine OCD subtypes, symptoms, course, onset and treatment implications
Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) exists in very mild to very severe forms and its complexities are only beginning to be understood. Subtypes of OCD and differences in onset can sometimes have great implications for prognosis and outcomes. The treatment of this complicated disorder can seem overwhelming and clinicians often become frustrated with suboptimal results in therapy. Because exposure with response prevention treatment is designed to increase anxiety levels, it is often difficult to engage individuals in the process, further hindering the clinician's ability to successfully intervene.
This one-day seminar provides a complete overview of OCD, its subtypes, course, onset, prognosis and practical guidelines for effectively diagnosing and treating this complex disorder. Case examples will demonstrate the use of techniques that are usually only described briefly in textbooks. In addition, participants will discuss strategies to enhance motivation and encourage individuals to engage in exposure with response prevention, an anxiety-provoking treatment. The use of cognitive behavioral therapy, pharmacological and other interventions for OCD will also be discussed. Attendees will explore future directions and innovations that provide encouragement, especially when working with clients that have proven to be "treatment-resistant." You will leave the day with strategies and skills that can be immediately implemented for more effective treatment of OCD.
