Therapists of patients with OCD and/or anxiety disorders often struggle with barriers to motivation or engagement in Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) despite having a general desire for symptom reduction and improved quality of life. The purpose of this workshop is to identify and address several of the most common barriers to treatment engagement among adults and children including depression/hopelessness, intolerance of distress, oppositional behavior, ADHD, and others. Particular emphasis will be given to making exposures fun and working with OCD in the midst of hopelessness.
