The Role of Autism Spectrum Disorders in OCD Treatment: Complicating Comorbidities

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

Symptoms of OCD and Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASDs) can often overlap. This workshop will help professionals differentiate symptoms of each, better understand the impact of ASD diagnoses, and how psychological and pharmacological OCD treatment can be modified to maximize success. While the
entire Autism spectrum will be discussed, implications for high functioning individuals will be emphasized. Presenters will give guidance on assessment tools to help screen for ASDs. Guidelines for assessment, intervention, and theoretical and practical considerations for CBT/ERP for individuals with dual diagnoses will be provided. The workshop will discuss how psychopharmacological treatment may be impacted by dual diagnoses, and how it may be modified from a “traditional” course of OCD treatment.
