From the time that the initial CBT model of OCD was established, it has been assumed that cognitive processes play a role in OCD. In this symposium we will elaborate on and extend this model. We will start with a presentation on biased attention in OCD. The second presentation will continue this talk by investigating contributors to the development of seeking certainty in OCD. The third presentation will examine visual perspective in obsessional imagery. Finally, we will explore the utility of adding a training designed to modify negative interpretative biases as an adjunct to CBT treatment.
