Event Title: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Obsessive Compulsive Disorder: An Introductory Online Course

Location: Online

Description: Taught by MGH faculty, this interactive course helps mental health professionals understand and identify clinical features of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), as well as employ effective assessment and treatment strategies for OCD.

OCD is a disabling psychiatric condition and patients often report considerable functional impairment and poor quality of life. It is essential for psychiatrists, primary care physicians, psychologists, social workers, and other frontline mental health professionals to accurately differentiate OCD from other conditions with similar presentations, such as impulse control disorder.

During this course, faculty experts provide guidance on how to:

  • Develop a personalized cognitive behavioral model for patients with OCD based upon a comprehensive assessment.
  • Apply cognitive-, behavioral-, and acceptance-based skills to treat the different OCD symptom subtypes
  • Manage treatment interfering behaviors (such as homework noncompliance)
The course includes an array of role-play videos to illustrate techniques, self-assessments, and moderated discussion boards that allow faculty to provide direct feedback on clinical questions. All course content is 100% mobile- friendly and on-demand, so you can complete assignments whenever and wherever your schedule allows.

Course materials are available beginning on January 2, 2017, and all online course work must be completed by February 6, 2017.
