OCD & Anxiety Fall Lecture Series: Sessions III & IV

Join us for our OCD & Anxiety Fall Lecture Series at Sheppard Pratt!

SESSION III: Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder and Relationships: Helping Our Patients Thrive in Love, Friendship, Family, and Work

Presented by: Amy Mariaskin, PhD

Although Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD) is conceptualized as an individual disorder, its impact on interpersonal relationships is considerable. Patients may experience difficulties with cultivating fulfilling connections and sustaining them over time. This presentation will outline the impact of OCD symptoms on relationships across multiple domains, including romantic partnership, friendship, and family. Clinicians will learn how to assess for relational impacts, include loved ones in treatment, and provide clients with tools derived from evidence-based practice to mitigate the impact of symptoms on relationships.

After this lecture, registrants will be able to:

  • Demonstrate conceptual understanding of Relationship OCD (ROCD) and how it manifests in various relationship types. Identify the evidence-based augmentation options when first-line treatment is insufficient.
  • Identify relational impacts of OCD as shown by research.
  • Apply the principles of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and Exposure and Response Prevention to generate a hierarchy of values-based relational exposures for individuals with OCD.

SESSION IV: The Treatment of Co-Occurring Borderline Personality Disorder and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder

Presented by: Blaise Aguirre, MD

Borderline personality disorder (BPD) is a common comorbidity in obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). And yet, the effect of the comorbidity on the symptom presentation, course, and treatment outcome of OCD is rarely fully examined in clinical practice. This lecture will examine the clinical presentation when the conditions co-occur and will provide some insights into the treatment of the co-morbid conditions.

After this lecture, registrants will be able to:

  • Recognize the co-occurrence of Borderline personality disorder (BPD) and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD).
  • Differentiate between the function of behavior when as a symptom of BPD or OCD, when the disorders co-occur. 
  • Apply effective treatment strategies to similar-appearing behaviors depending on whether as a manifestation of BPD or OCD when the diagnoses co-occur.
