About the Program: OCD is associated with substantial impairment and comorbidity, and often presents vexing problems to even the most experienced clinicians. This two-day seminar will address the rationale and implementation of the empirically supported cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) treatments for OCD in adults, adolescents and children. The Saturday program will cover the nature of OCD and the theoretical foundation of CBT with regards to this treatment approach among adults. The Sunday program will focus on working with children with OCD and their families through a cognitive behavioral framework; information about treatment of OC spectrum disorders will also be included. Evidence for the conceptual model and the treatments will be presented, but strong emphasis will be placed throughout on the “How-to” of CBT implementation. Detailed examples will be provided of the verbal interplay that often arises in the implementation of CBT with OCD patients, with ample opportunity for discussion of audience members’ clinical and conceptual questions.
