SP06 – You CAN Treat OCD

Location: Regency Ballroom

Difficulty: Intermediate

The rigid beliefs and bizarre behavior of clients with obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) can seem intimidating to any therapist. But if you look under the hood, the driving force of this dominant disorder is always the same: something could go terribly wrong and it will be your fault. Treatment can be difficult, but it is not complex. Participants will learn the core strategies of treatment and the primary tactics to confront client resistance.

Educational Objectives:

  1. Defend the importance of altering perception, as opposed to utilizing technique, to help clients with OCD.
  2. Describe and utilize a self-help strategy to frame the treatment protocol for OCD.
  3. Construct and assign behavioral experiments to test out the reliability and validity of this therapeutic intervention without the use of hierarchies.
