Effective Treatment of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder:
Understanding & Using Exposure & Ritual Prevention
Trainer: Dr. Mark Sasvary (CBHS Independent Practice Association)
Wednesday, May 25 (11:30am-12:30pm) 
Funder: SAMHSA

Approximately 1% of the population has obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD). The most effective treatment is a form of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy called Exposure and Ritual Prevention (ERP) and this training will introduce attendees to ERP fundamentals. ERP is a highly effective treatment and has been the subject of extensive research demonstrating it efficacy. The goal of exposure is to help service recipients unlink the association between thoughts or situations and a corresponding fear response. Ritual Prevention helps service recipients learn that they don’t have to engage in compulsive behavior to find relief and can use adaptive coping skills instead.
This is one of the best mental health webinars I've seen, and the clinical experience of the presenter really shines through." ~ 'Effective Treatment of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder' Training Attendee
