SESSION I: Cognitive-Behavioral Treatment of Pediatric Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder
Presented by: Eric A. Storch, PhD
This lecture will discuss the nature of pediatric Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder and evidence-based treatment. Specifically, it will describe core elements of leading psychological approaches (i.e., exposure and response prevention). It will focus on educating learners about core concepts in treatment and how to apply them in the care of children with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. In addition, discussion of the relevant evidence base and future clinical and research directions will be highlighted.
After this lecture, registrants will be able to:
- State the core components of cognitive-behavioral therapy for pediatric Obsessive Compulsive Disorder.
- Discuss the role of family in the treatment of pediatric Obsessive Compulsive Disorder.
- Describe the role of cognitive therapy in pediatric Obsessive Compulsive Disorder treatment
SESSION II: The Role of Medications in Pediatric Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder: Water Wings for Behavioral Therapy
Presented by: Erika Nurmi, MD, PhD
Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD) can be a severely impairing condition but is highly responsive to specialized care. There is a substantial evidence base demonstrating the best approaches to treating OCD; therefore, it is critical that clinicians are informed of strategies that do and don’t work. While exposure-response prevention (ERP) is the gold-standard treatment for OCD, many patients cannot adequately engage in treatment without the help of pharmacotherapy. Medications can help patients be willing to begin therapy, tolerate exposures without getting overwhelmed, and move efficiently through an exposure hierarchy. Evidence shows that outcomes are significantly improved when medications are used in conjunction with ERP. While SSRIs represent the single first-line medication class, strategies for SSRI augmentation or second- and third-line approaches are more complex. The majority of patients presenting to our intensive outpatient program have not received adequate CBT or pharmacotherapeutic care. Experience with severe OCD is often limited in training and specialized education is necessary for providers to be well-equipped to effectively treat the full range of OCD manifestations.
After this lecture, registrants will be able to:
- Determine the need for pharmacotherapy for OCD and choose a first-line medication.
- Identify the evidence-based augmentation options when first-line treatment is insufficient.
- Appreciate and leverage the synergy between CBT and pharmacotherapy in the treatment of OCD.
