Description

Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD) is a mental health condition characterized by obsessions (repetitive, intrusive, and distressing thoughts) and compulsions (repetitive behaviors or mental acts performed in response to the obsessions). It's important to note that treatment for OCD typically involves a combination of therapy, medication, and ongoing supportive measures and that most clinicians do not get specialized training in treating OCD as part of traditional clinical education.  While many clinicians may find treating individuals with OCD to be daunting and intimidating, quality evidence-based treatments, such as Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP), are available and highly effective in managing OCD symptoms and improving quality of life.

As OCD is often misunderstood and misdiagnosed, this introductory workshop will provide important considerations for differential diagnosis and treatment planning, including the fundamentals of Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP). This workshop is an excellent primer for clinicians who are interested in learning more about how to effectively identify and treat individuals with OCD.

 

This is a non-interactive self-study course. Instruction consists of 90+ minutes of video instruction and a post-test.

Requirements

Following the video instruction, there is a post-test and a course evaluation.

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

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify symptoms that distinguish OCD from other related mental health conditions.
  • Explain the rationale for the use of Exposure and Response Prevention to manage the symptoms of OCD.
  • List at least three key principles of Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP).

Course Availability

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