Join us for sessions V & VI of the free virtual OCD & Anxiety Fall Lecture series!
SESSION V, 12 - 1:30 p.m. ET: Intensive Process-Based CBT for Adolescents with Severe OCD and Related Disorders
Presented by: Marla W. Deibler, PsyD, ABPP
Body-Focused Repetitive Behaviors (BFRBs) are repetitive self-grooming behaviors, such as trichotillomania (hair pulling) and excoriation disorder (skin-picking), that fall within the scope of OCD and related disorders. Although BFRBs are common, affecting as many as 1 in 20 individuals, accessing accurate information and evidence-based treatment resources can be challenging. This workshop will provide an overview of BFRBs, including the phenomenology, self-reinforcing nature of the disorders, current trends in evidence-based treatment, and resources for clinicians and individuals living with these disorders.
After this lecture, attendees will be able to:
- Discuss the prevalence and phenomenology of BFRBs.
- Define factors influencing the symptomology and maintenance of BFRBs.
- Describe existing evidence-based treatments as well as emerging therapeutic approaches in the treatment of BFRBs.
1:30 – 1:45 p.m.: Break
SESSION VI, 1:45 – 3:15 p.m.: Multimodal Treatment of Pediatric OCD: Outcomes at Higher Levels of Care
Presented by: Martin E. Franklin, PhD
Pediatric OCD is a leading cause of disability worldwide associated with family, social, and academic impairments in affected youth. Fortunately, cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) involving exposure and response prevention (ERP) has emerged as an efficacious form of treatment both alone and in combination with serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SRIs). However, most pediatric OCD clinical trials have examined weekly outpatient regimens. In this discussion, we will review the theoretical underpinnings and empirical support for ERP, as well as various treatment procedures, and necessary adaptations for use at higher levels of care. We will discuss new evidence for the efficacy of multimodal treatment for pediatric OCD that includes ERP. The overarching goal is to present the treatment components in sufficient detail such that clinicians can readily incorporate their use in clinical practice. Ample time will be provided to address questions about ERP and its use at various levels of care.
After this lecture, registrants will be able to:
- Recognize the core components of pediatric OCD’s phenomenology.
- Describe the nuances of this literature, particularly with respect to what has yet to be fully established with respect to treatment efficacy.
- Identify evidence for the efficacy of multimodal treatment delivered at higher levels of care.
Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD) is a common and often debilitating mental health condition characterized by unwanted intrusive thoughts (obsessions) and repeated distress-reducing behaviors (compulsions). Unfortunately, OCD is frequently misunderstood, misdiagnosed, and mistreated. This series of lectures will demystify OCD and related disorders and discuss the most effective protocols for helping those who suffer from them. Attendees new to or heavily experienced in treating OCD and related disorders will gain knowledge from the multiple perspectives provided. This unique format features six lectures from top experts in the field, scheduled across three sessions during the fall season. This series includes experts presenting on uncertainty acceptance in OCD treatment, sleep and OCD, process-based treatment of severe OCD and related disorders in for teens, similarities and differences in interventions for OCD and related disorders, current best practices for children and adolescents, and multimodal treatment of pediatric OCD at higher levels of care.
This series offers 9.0 contact hours for attending all three dates.
