This workshop will begin with a review of the theoretical and empirical work conducted on the psychopathology and treatment of different manifestations of OCD. The workshop will continue with practical instruction on the cognitive-behavioural assessment and treatment of a variety of forms of the disorder, with particular emphasis on obsessions, compulsive checking, and contamination-based OCD (mental contamination).
Attendees will learn about cognitive case formulation, the importance of ongoing assessment, and specific therapeutic interventions (with emphasis on behavioural experiments), all following from cognitive-behavioural models of OCD. Although OCD remains a serious and often debilitating disorder, our ability to substantially improve the lives of those suffering from the problem has dramatically increased in recent years.
This workshop will capitalize on these recent improvements through the emphasis on new cognitive and behavioural treatment strategies for this challenging disorder.
