Exposure Response Prevention for Morbid and Harm Obsessive Compulsive Disorder

1.5 CE Hours

Cognitive behavior therapy using exposure and response prevention (ERP) is considered the gold standard evidence-based practice for the psychological treatment of obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). The application of ERP to the treatment of individuals who suffer OCD that is characterized by morbid and harm obsessions will be the focus of this presentation. The presentation will also help attendees understand the phenomenon of suicidal obsessions, which are a version of harm obsessions, and will teach them how to discern suicidal obsessions from suicidal ideation.
