OCD Treatment

November 16, 2018 @ 1:00 pm - 4:15 pm

The Dayton Area Psychological Association (DAPA) brings you:

Treating OCD: An overview of Exposure and Response Prevention with Case Examples

A 3-hour MCE workshop presented by

Nicole Bosse, PsyD

School of Professional Psychology (SOPP), Ellis Institute

West Third St. and Edwin C. Moses Blvd, Dayton, Ohio


Description of the Workshop

The objective of this presentation is to provide attendees with a general understanding of the treatment of clients struggling with OCD. A thorough understanding of a client’s specific obsessions, compulsions and core fear is useful for clinicians in conceptualizing and formulating a treatment plan. Case examples will be used to help illustrate the various presentations and various forms of OCD will be described (e.g., morbid OCD, contamination OCD, scrupulosity, hyper-responsibility). This presentation will also provide an overview of various cognitive-behavioral and acceptance and commitment strategies to assist the clinician in treating OCD.  Lastly, this presentation will review exposure and response prevention in depth and illustrate how to implement this type of therapy with clients.
