Obsessive Compulsive Disorder

Hello! For comprehensive information on Obsessive Compulsive Disorder and its treatment , Please Visit The International OCD Foundation web addresses

I have been trained by the International OCD Foundation , in the treatment of General OCD, and Advanced Behavior Training for treating OCD. Exposure Response Prevention which is, exposure to obsessional thoughts /triggers and response prevention from rituals or compulsions. If indicated couple therapy is helpful to aid in OCD symptom reduction.

Just a note....
Along with CBT and ERP a relatively newer approach called ACT Acceptance and Commitment Therapy can be used to treat OCD. ACT has a lot in common with ERP and is a Values based approach. Sometimes I find ACT can help with treating the obsessions which helps you to accept/tolerate them while your working on refraining from giving into compulsions . Often the out come results in a reduction in obsessions and compulsions over time.

ACT is also used with many other conditions other than OCD. : for information on Body Dysmorphic Disorder , Muscle Dysmorphia (MD) , MD in the Gay Community
