On October 31st, Dr. Z will be presenting a 2-hour workshop at the Mind Therapy Clinic. Please read part of the description below for an overview of what the training will cover:
This workshop will focus on teaching participants how to conduct a contextual functional assessment for OCD and related conditions, how to facilitate an ACT- consistent exposure session, and what to do when getting stuck in an exposure session (e.g. clients have a high degree of believability on thought-action-fusion, exposures turn into rituals, relatives inadvertently reinforce OCD, the costs of avoidance outweigh the gains of living a meaningful life, etc).
In addition, the Choice Point, an ACT-derived behavioral intervention, will be presented as an additional case formulation and treatment intervention to augment the impact of ERP sessions for pediatric OCD. This includes an experiential exercise to see the choice point in action when work ing with OCD to help participants to
- Identify client’s hooks and helpers,
- Clarify client’s values, and
Discriminate values based behaviors from OCD-driven behaviors.
