State-of-the-Art Therapeutics for Repetitive Behavioral Disorders

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

We will discuss expert treatment of repetitive behaviors in several disorders. First, we will discuss results of a recent trial of deep transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) in the treatment of OCD. We will then discuss the results of a placebo-controlled, double-blind study of paliperidone augmentation of SRI treatment in OCD. We will then focus on BDD and discuss clinical features, complications, and the latest in treatment approaches. We will also review newly obtained pilot data on more recently developed psychosocial treatments for BDD, including internet-based CBT and acceptance-based exposure therapy. Finally, we will compare the evidence for state-of-the-art biological and behavioral treatment approaches for OCD, hoarding disorder, BDD, autism-spectrum disorders, trichotillomania, and skin picking. Audience participation and discussion will be encouraged.
