Cognitive-Behavioral Treatment of Hypochondriasis and Health-Related OCD

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

Hypochondriasis is defined as an obsessive preoccupation with fears of having a serious disease that persists despite repeated reassurance from medical professionals that no such disease exists. Hypochondriasis, now called Health Anxiety and considered a separate disorder in the DSM-V, nevertheless has many common features with classic OCD symptoms where the fear of illness is present. This talk will cover the similarities and differences between these two disorders, outline the latest CBT shown to be effective, and offer case examples of how CBT is effectively applied to relieve the distress associated with these conditions.
