Description

Diagnosis, Assessment and Treatment of OCD: A Primer for Professionals

Jointly sponsored by Rogers Behavioral Health and OCD Central and South Florida, an affiliate of the International OCD Foundation, this seminar will help you develop a more comprehensive cognitive approach for the conceptualization and treatment of OCD in children, teens and adults.

Who Should Attend

Social workers, licensed professional counselors, psychologists and other mental health professionals who would like to improve their skills working with children, teens and adults with OCD and related disorders. Appropriate for beginning to intermediate level practitioners.

About the Program

Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is a highly debilitating illness. As many as 90% of people with OCD meet criteria for a comorbid disorder, most commonly an anxiety disorder. Two out of three individuals with OCD report severe impairment, yet individuals with OCD spend an average of almost 9 years before receiving a correct diagnosis and treatment. Fortunately, effective pharmacological and cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) based treatments exist that help. The CBT approach with the most empirical support for its efficacy is exposure and response prevention (ERP). ERP is based on the principle of gradual in vivo or imaginal exposure to stimuli that evoke obsessional distress and the prevention of compulsive behavior.

The morning program will cover the nature of OCD and the theoretical foundation of CBT with regards to this treatment approach among adults. The afternoon program will focus on working with children with OCD and their families through a cognitive behavioral framework.
