This panel will discuss some of the recent research on sensory over-responsivity (SOR; disproportionate reaction to ordinary sensory stimuli). Panelists will provide a brief overview of recent findings about SOR in OCD, trichotillomania, and misophonia. A Q&A session will then be held between the panelists themselves and audience as well. Sample issues include: What role does SOR play in OCD and related disorders? How can someone incorporate these issues into their treatment? The conversation will be primarily focused on the clinical application of these researchers' findings.
