Cultivating Treatment Readiness in Kids and Teens with Intrusive Thoughts, Scrupulosity and Just Right OCD

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

Children and teens may be afraid to engage in exposure to intrusive thoughts, religious and moral issues, and just-right OCD, and therapists may find it challenging to help them work through their reluctance. This workshop offers therapists a systematic and proactive clinical approach to preparing young clients to tackle particularly difficult symptoms, and to reducing reluctance and drop-out. The importance of cultivating treatment readiness in youngsters prior to exposure, and of clarifying the right versus the wrong goal of treatment will be highlighted. The creative application of cognitive and behavioral strategies to build readiness will be presented, with case examples and video clips. Attendees will participate in developing exposure hierarchies for each manifestation of OCD. Questions and discussion are welcomed.
