CBT for Doubt & Intolerance of Uncertainty in OCD

Designing a treatment of exposure and response prevention is relatively simple, but obtaining compliance is an art. OCD sufferers are unwilling to perform ERP exercises unless they are 100% certain that the feared event will not occur.

Dr. Grayson will discuss the most important reasons for treatment non-compliance and present techniques for obtaining treatment compliance. He will also discuss modifications of treatment for different OCD symptoms, for co-morbidity, for difficult to treat manifestations of OCD, and for obsessing about obsessing.

Presented by Jonathan Grayson, Ph.D.
