Though mindfulness can be an invaluable part of treatment, traditional CBT tools, including cognitive restructuring and exposure with response prevention (ERP), are often still the most effective interventions for producing measurable change. So how can we as clinicians enhance these trusted tools with the development of mindfulness skills in our clients? In this talk, therapists treating OCD can develop a comprehensive understanding of the role mindfulness plays within CBT for OCD. Topics will include how to present mindfulness concepts specifically to clients with OCD and related disorders, how to make traditional tools such as the automatic thought record more effective (and less compulsive) by infusing mindfulness principles, and how to promote active engagement in ERP with mindfulness skill development.
