Saturday, October 27
10:45 AM - 12:00 PM
Location: Tangerine WF4

Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is a common and impairing psychiatric condition. Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) with exposure and response prevention is the most effective form of psychotherapy with response rates of approximately 75% to 80%. This session will describe the core components and application of exposure-based CBT for individuals with OCD. Participants will learn how to build fear/ritual hierarchies and to implement exposure and response prevention therapy for a range of obsessive-compulsive symptoms.
