Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) is a serious and long lasting mental health disorder. While it is quite prevalent in the general population, it often is misunderstood and goes undiagnosed. OCD sufferers may go years before they receive an accurate diagnosis and therefore effective treatment.
This seminar will explore the many different faces of OCD, and the treatments that have been shown by research to be effective. Particular emphasis will be placed on combining mindfulness and acceptance-based practices with traditional exposure and response prevention techniques in order to foster effective treatment and sustained recovery.
Participants will develop an increased capacity to assess, diagnosis, and successfully treat people struggling with OCD. Participants will develop proficiency in providing psychoeducation, mindfulness-based cognitive behavioral therapy, and exposure and response prevention on behalf of clients served.
