Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) protocols have been established as efficacious for children, adolescents, and adults with obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD). In the 1.5 day Level I symposium, Dr. Franklin and colleagues will present in an interactive lecture format a cognitive-behavioral conceptualization of OCD and describe the treatment strategies that flow directly from this empirically informed conceptualization. They will focus on proper assessment and implementation of CBT, but will also address commonly encountered issues such as low motivation, working with families, considering CBT and medication strategies together, and modifying treatment procedures to accommodate patients with OCD who also suffer from autism spectrum conditions.

By attending this continuing education session, participants will be able to:
- Describe the theoretical foundations of CBT for OCD
- Summarize in patient-friendly language the empirical literature that underlies a CBT conceptualization
- Utilize core CBT techniques of exposure, response prevention, and cognitive interventions
- Recognize when clinical circumstances warrant progression up the treatment hierarchy as planned versus re-conceptualizing and re-working the treatment plan
- Identify the empirically supported combined treatment strategies for OCD
- Discuss the extant literature with patients and families to enhance the selection of optimal treatment targets and interventions
- Answer questions likely to arise from patients and families about the rationale for CBT in the treatment of specific OCD symptoms
