people have difficulty finding effective therapy for
Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) either for themselves
or for a loved one.
frequently avoid working with clients with OCD because
the effective treatment methods do not fit nicely into
a series of one-hour visits to the therapist's office.
Let's face it, OCD is a difficult condition to treat
and many therapists are inexperienced with effective
treatment procedures and actually make things worse
for the client.
research developments have now demonstrated that the
best treatment response is obtained when OCD is treated
using a Cognitive Behavioral perspective employing a
process of Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP).
