On average, it takes 12-17 years for individuals who have OCD to be properly diagnosed and receive appropriate treatment. This training will educate clinicians in how to recognize and accurately diagnose OCD so that more clients can get the help that they really need. Attendees of this event will also learn how to practice the gold-standard of therapy for OCD: Exposure and Response Prevention therapy. Attendees will learn why traditional talk therapy is ineffective for OCD, common mistakes among clinicians, and how to guide a client through more effective strategies for change. At the end of the training, attendees will be able to identify the client’s core fears, build an exposure hierarchy, and learn how to motivate clients to resist OCD compulsions.
