Cognitive Behavioral Treatment for OCD (with CE hours) - Virtual

Cognitive-Behavioral therapy is recognized as the gold standard treatment for OCD. The foremost point of this approach is to empower individuals with OCD to use Exposure & Response Prevention (ERP) protocols. Attendees will learn how to assess OCD, develop a treatment plan based on cognitive-behavioral principles, and learn how clients can execute this plan even when seemingly unmotivated. This workshop is designed for practitioners who treat anxiety and mood disorders, who would like to learn crucial details about the treatment of OCD and avoid co-obsessing with the client. Not knowing how to help individuals with OCD can cause more harm than good. The workshop provides an understanding of effective strategies and a comparison of different treatment approaches not used for the treatment of OCD. Role-plays will demonstrate strategies and case examples will show how to tailor interventions to meet the unique needs of each individual.
