Pre-Conference Training Session: Introduction to Treating Pediatric OCD

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Cognitive-behavior therapy (CBT) for obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) is a well-established efficacious treatment package. However, child and adolescent presentations of the disorder vary considerably from adult presentations. As a result, treatment for childhood OCD differs in a number of important ways. This includes: manner of conducting exposure with response prevention exercises, involvement of parents/guardians in therapy, and confronting resistance to treatment. These variants present unique challenges to clinicians that are outside usual practice when treating adults with OCD, or children with other psychiatric disturbances.

This workshop is aimed at professionals with a previous background in cognitive-behavioral therapy for OCD and will have the following instructional aims: (a) provide methods of developing exposure with response prevention exercises for atypical and complex presentations of OCD in youth; (b) cover methods for involving parents in treatment, with specific reference to reducing accommodation and relieving ancillary parental psychopathology that may interfere with child functioning; and (c) treatment of special populations of the disorder, such as adolescents and those with additional treatment needs such as emotion regulation skill training. 

*Additional registration fee: $125 for all professionals / $100 for IOCDF Student/Trainee Members.
