Perinatal and Postpartum Onset of OCD: Current Research and Future Directions

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

Previous research has indicated that pregnancy and the postpartum period are risk factors for the development of OCD as compared to those in the general population, and the occurrence of OCD is higher in these periods than previously believed. This presentation will review prevalence of OCD in the perinatal and postpartum period, and share multiple case studies using the CBT-ER/P model. In addition, information will be shared regarding the dimensions of OCD observed in perinatal and postpartum OCD, as well as a novel early intervention model. Furthermore, this presentation will share information about future directions and implications for research.
