Treatment of OCD: A case formulation approach

Exposure with response prevention (ERP) is highly effective in treatment of obsessive-compulsive disorder, if patients are willing to do it. Engagement may be especially poor when the exposure exercises are not derived from a strong idiographic case formulation that the patient understands and agrees with. This workshop will introduce an elaborated CBT model for understanding the persistence of obsessions and compulsions which emphasizes core beliefs, stop rules, memory confidence, reasoning styles, and doubt. In this interactive workshop, attendees will be guided in the process of developing a comprehensive case formulation that will facilitate greater commitment to and engagement in ERP.
