Pre-Conference Training Session: Introduction to Treating OCD

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

The clinical significance of obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) has long been recognized. According to the World Health Organization, OCD is among the 10 most disabling medical conditions. Other disorders that share some similarities with OCD have gained greater recognition in recent years and are now grouped together in one DSM-5 diagnostic category called Obsessive-Compulsive & Related Disorders.

This training program is designed to provide clinicians an overview of the nature and treatment of the various subtypes of OCD and related disorders such as body dysmorphic disorder, hoarding disorder, hair pulling disorder (Trichotillomania), and skin picking disorder (Excoriation). Topics to be covered include clinical features and diagnosis, current assessment methods, review of evidence-based treatments (e.g., exposure and response prevention), adjunctive therapies, and family issues. The program will include lecture, slides, and case illustrations. 

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