Utilizing Exposure Therapy in the Treatment of OCD Webinar

Utilizing Exposure Therapy in the Treatment of OCD

Join us for a Live Webinar on May 27, 2022 from 12-1:30 pm EST
1.5 CE Hours available for behavioral health clinicians

It is not uncommon for individuals with Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD) to have strong, aversive reactions to situations that occur in everyday life.  If we understand OCD as an emotional disorder, then we should consider interventions that have demonstrated efficacy with other disorders with similar underlying mechanisms, such as generalized anxiety and panic disorders. Transdiagnostic interventions that approach, rather than avoid, emotion increase emotional tolerance and decrease the drive to use OCD rituals and behaviors as a means to manage emotional distress. This workshop will explore the rationale and application of evidence-based emotion exposure interventions for the treatment of OCD.
Dr. Melanie Smith is presenting two separate training events on May 27, 2022.
Details for the second webinar, "Treating Eating Disorders in the Digital Age" can be found here.
Enroll for each webinar individually for $40 - or choose the discounted 2-webinar bundle for $59.
