Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is a common condition associated with unwanted thoughts, images, or urges (obsessions) and repeated behaviours aimed at reducing anxiety or preventing danger (compulsions). Examples of common obsessions include intrusions concerning contamination, doubting one’s actions or experiences, aggressive thoughts, religious thoughts, and sexual thoughts. Common compulsions include excessive washing, checking, and counting, as well as repeated actions, words, thoughts, phrases, or prayers. People with OCD also typically avoid situations, objects, or mental experiences that trigger their anxiety and intrusions. This workshop will provide an overview of effective strategies for treating OCD.

This presentation will include a detailed discussion of exposure and response prevention – the gold standard behavioral treatment for OCD.  Participants will learn how to plan exposure practices, including presenting the treatment rationale and developing an effective exposure hierarchy. Best practices in exposure therapy will be discussed, including the latest recommendations based on inhibitory learning approaches. Strategies for preventing compulsive rituals will also be discussed.  Some of the questions that will be answered include: What’s the difference between an OCD ritual and a helpful coping strategy? When it comes to exposure therapy, how far is too far? Can exposure make someone’s anxiety worse?  What is the best way to structure exposure practices?  How does one adapt exposure practices during a pandemic? Read More
