Step Back, Want It, Step Forward, Be Cunning: A Self-Help Paradigm

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

We should all begin addressing OCD with the least expensive and least time-consuming intervention, and progress to costlier treatment as needed. One initial step is a simple, active, paradoxical self-help protocol that lets patients generate their own set of homework assignments to challenge the dominance of the disorder moment-by-moment. The four components of this model will be presented. “Step Back” refers to the ability to gain perspective in the moment of distress. “Want It” emphasizes the intention to access an emotional state counter to fear. “Step Forward” implies the typical assignment of exposure, while adding this new point of view. “Be Cunning” suggests specific tactics in the moment of doubt and distress.
