About the course

The aim of this Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) two-day course will be to provide up to date knowledge and skills in assessment and intervention for children and adolescents with OCD. The approaches which will be outlined are evidence based and viewed as best practice. The emphasis of the course will be on skills-based teaching of cognitive behaviour therapy strategies.

Day One

As part of DAY 1 the group will work through a case example, with the inclusion of audio and visual materials, in order to gain a detailed understanding of assessment and treatment in context. The day will also incorporate group exercises in order to practice skills in carrying out a comprehensive assessment and implementing Cognitive Behavioural Therapy for OCD.

Day Two

As part of DAY 2 the group will work through some of the challenges and complexities that frequently present in the implementation of CBT for OCD. The delegates will be asked to bring case examples of young people with OCD they have worked with (preferably in the time between DAY 1 and DAY 2) and to reflect on what worked well and in particular what they found challenging. The facilitators will support the group to work through these case examples and will also lead a more broad discussion about common pitfalls and challenges in carrying out CBT for OCD
