Obsessive Compulsive Disorder and Pregnancy: State of the Field and Future Directions

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

The aim of this presentation is to provide an overview of the state of the field regarding OCD and pregnancy, including core features of obsessions/compulsions among those with perinatal or postpartum OCD (pOCD), risk factors, comorbidity with other psychiatric disorders, differentiating pOCD from psychosis, treatment considerations, and challenges and barriers when treating pOCD. In addition, much of the literature focuses on pOCD symptoms during a single pregnancy or retrospectively. This presentation will share results from a case series regarding the trajectory of obsessive and compulsive severity levels among two mothers who were treated for pOCD and had a subsequent pregnancy. The presentation will end with recommendations for future research. Participation and discussion from the audience is highly encouraged.
