Abstract

 

For many years, Exposure and Response Prevention has been considered the gold-standard treatment for OCD. Although this approach is successful for many individuals with OCD, issues such as treatment refusal, dropout, and non-response can affect treatment outcomes. In recent years, there have been significant advances in cognitive treatments for OCD, with many of these focusing on cognitive processes rather than content of thoughts. This presentation will discuss the cognitive processes that maintain OCD and the advances in cognitive, meta-cognitive, and acceptance-based therapy approaches to treatment.Each event will be hosted at Benchmark Psychology.  Numbers are strictly limited, so please REGISTER to confirm availability.
