Obsessive Compulsive Disorder Treatment: The Basics and Beyond
Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) and related disorders are common presentations in the clinical setting for both children and adults. However, many clinicians are not familiar with the application of cognitive behavioral therapy to the treatment of OCD, specifically, the use of Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP). This workshop is divided into two presentations. The first, by Dr. Marni Jacob, will cover the basics of assessing and diagnosing OCD, differential diagnosis of OCD and related disorders, and how to implement ERP treatment strategies. Important factors in treatment, such as family accommodation and reassurance-seeking will also be addressed. Co-presenters Dr. Judith Migoya and Dr. Elizabeth Penela, of Pediatric Psychology Associates, will then present on implementing ERP with more challenging presentations, including scrupulosity, self-harm, and sexual obsessions, strategies for addressing exposures that do not go as planned, and incorporating others (parents, significant others) into ERP treatment.
