50 Years of Exposure and Response Prevention for OCD: Past, Present, and Future

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

It has been 50 years since the first study on exposure and response prevention (ERP) treatment for OCD was published. Since that time, OCD has been transformed from an unmanageable problem to a largely treatable condition. This panel assembles experts in the field of ERP for OCD to discuss developments in this treatment approach over the past 50 years. Panelists will reflect on the most significant contributions to the field as it has evolved, the impact of recent advances and findings in the field (e.g., inhibitory learning approaches), and their predictions for what the next 50 years will hold regarding ERP and the treatment of OCD. Audience participation and questions will be encouraged.
