Description

Evidence-Based Treatments for OCD: Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) is Module Two of the 3-course Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder Counseling Certificate Program (OCDCC). For more information on the OCDCC and discounted enrollment in the full program, please visit this page.

Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD) is a complex condition, and the severity of symptoms can vary widely from person to person. The pervasive nature of the disorder, as well as complicating factors such as co-occurring mental health conditions, can lead to clinician anxiety and uncertainty about how to best proceed with treatment. Therefore, comprehensive training in utilizing evidence-based strategies is crucial to ensuring that individuals with OCD receive the best quality of care possible.

This presentation will provide an overview of the existing evidence-based treatments for OCD and related disorders, with an in-depth look at Cognitive Behavioral Therapy with Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP), which has long been considered the gold standard for treatment. Clinicians will receive intensive training on the theoretical principles of new learning through exposure, will learn how to develop individualized exposure hierarchies to best target OCD symptoms, and will be given direct guidance on how to provide exposure opportunities in a variety of treatment settings. Reviews of the literature indicate that ERP combined with psychotropic medications may improve outcomes; therefore, an overview of the psychopharmacological treatment of OCD, as well as recommendations for multidisciplinary collaboration, will be provided.

This is a non-interactive, self-study course that offers over 6 hours of recorded video instruction, a post-test and a course evaluation.

Course Availability

From the time of registration, you have six months to access the coursework.

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this training, professionals will be able to do the following:

  • Explain the rationale for utilizing emotional exposure strategies for the management of OCD symptoms.
  • Describe two theoretical principles of exposure.
  • Create an individualized exposure hierarchy using a sample case.
  • Discuss the benefits and challenges of incorporating psychopharmacological interventions for individuals with OCD.
