Ruminative Response Style in Treatment-Resistant OCD: The Lurking Saboteur

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

The “ruminative response style” involves repetitive, cyclic, and persistent thinking in response to one’s negative affect. Ruminative responses specific to OCD may include negative self-talk following a difficult exposure, brooding following a relapse, or excessive analysis of symptoms/treatment. To date, little attention has been paid to the role of rumination in OCD, despite growing evidence that it plays a critical role in the maintenance of numerous psychiatric disorders, including OCD. In this workshop, I will discuss four treatment-resistant case examples reflecting an instance where the patient’s ruminative response style played a critical role in the development, maintenance, and treatment of their OCD.
