Webinar Description

This webinar will review the definition of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder before addressing taboo subtypes common among individuals experiencing OCD. Research indicates that clinicians who do not feel confident or comfortable engaging with taboo content are less likely to engage in the evidence-based intervention, ERP. Specific topics covered will include assessing and treating harm-themed OCD (self and others), sexually-themed OCD, and scrupulosity/morality-themed OCD.  There will be a brief overview of the gold-standard treatment, Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP). Sample exposure hierarchies will be provided and participants will role-play presenting the exposure rationale and generating in-vivo and imaginal exposures. The webinar will address common clinician concerns regarding how to navigate taboo content, "how far to push exposures," and how to motivate patients through difficult exposure work.
