The FAQs of ERP: Experts Tackle Key Questions about Exposure and Response Prevention

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

Four experts in the behavioral treatment of OCD will address four important questions that are frequently asked by patients: If I do not want to take medication, or I cannot tolerate the side effects, will ERP still be effective? How do I minimize the cost of ERP treatment? How do you use response prevention on mental rituals? How far should my therapist take the extremes of exposure? Each expert will give a brief response to each question, with time allotted for audience questions.
