CBT for OCD Characterized Primarily by Intrusive Thoughts, Using ERP and ACT Approaches

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

In the past, OCD characterized primarily by intrusive, unwanted, troubling thoughts of a harming, sexual, or religious/moral nature, with no observable rituals, was considered difficult or impossible to treat. Sufferers were often misdiagnosed, not properly treated, and left feeling tormented and ashamed. In fact, primarily obsessional OCD can be successfully treated. This workshop – geared toward mental health professionals but also valuable for individuals with OCD – will address using CBT, including Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP), and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) approaches in treating primarily obsessional OCD. It will also include a roleplay demonstration using an imaginal exposure.
