Course Description:
Have you ever heard someone say, “I’m so OCD”? This is a common statement because OCD is often misunderstood in our society. As clinicians, you are likely to have clients with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. Understanding the disorder and fundamental treatment approaches is beneficial.

This workshop will present the etiology of OCD, including symptomology and assessment measures for proper DSM-5-TR diagnosis. Key features of the disorder, including thought and behavior patterns, will be explored. The core treatment approaches of CBT and ERP will be highlighted. Case vignettes and video clips will provide clinicians with opportunities to engage in critical thinking and discussion. 

This course will present treatment strategies that are appropriate for the general population with OCD, which can include children. The material will mostly focus on adults.
