ACT and Exposure: Finding Common Ground and Getting the Best of Both Worlds

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

According to the latest research, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) are both effective treatments for OCD; however, not everyone achieves complete symptom reduction. Our clinical experience suggests that complementary elements of ACT and ERP can be combined to improve upon each modality. We have developed an “Acceptance-Based ERP” program, the goal of which is to enhance compliance and outcome in comparison to treatment as usual. This workshop will teach clinicians about the commonalities between ACT and ERP, as well as how they can be synthesized. We will present numerous case examples and conduct role plays illustrating how to implement acceptance-based ERP.
