Event description
This webinar reviews contemporary principles and techniques for treating Obsessive Compulsive Disorder from a psychotherapeutic perspective.

About this event

Studies indicate that up to 3% of the population suffer from obsessive‑compulsive disorder (OCD)

The disorder is characterized by recurrent obsessions or compulsions, and often both. These symptoms cause significant functional impairment and distress in many sufferers.

An obsession can be defined as "an unwanted intrusive thought, image or urge that repeatedly enters the person's mind".

Compulsions are repetitive behaviours or mental acts a person feels compelled to perform. A compulsion could be overt and observable by others, such as checking that a gas ring is turned off, or a hidden mental act that others cannot see, such as repeating a certain phrase to one's self inwardly.

This interactive webinar will introduce delegates to the main principles and practices in the treatment of OCD, noting the challenges of treatment, links to other disorders and the relevant NICE guidelines.
