Clients will report that they are plagued by obsessive thoughts but have no compulsions. when hearing a presenting complaint, the psychologist immediately wonders if the client is mistaken, if they have that mysterious form of OCD referred to as “pure O” or if perhaps another diagnosis may better explain the client’s experience and more effectively guide treatment.
This presentation is designed to assist clinicians in more effectively assessing and treating individuals with similar presentations. They will gain an understanding of “pure O” OCD and how to treat those who suffer. They will learn how to identify other anxiety disorders disguised as OCD and how to embark on treatment in these situations. Curriculum is focused on implementing CBT for the treatment of OCD and other relevant anxiety disorders.
