Difficulties in Emotional Regulation (ER) have been implicated in psychological disorders but not extensively studied in OCD. Recent findings show ER problems are positively correlated with OCD severity in community and clinical samples. In practice co-morbidities affect motivation, treatment planning and progress and treatments incorporating mindfulness, ACT, DBT, tailored CBT strategies and novel approaches such as Cognitive Remediation Therapy can improve mood, cognitive flexibility and eventually ERP effectiveness. We will review research, treatments and describe relevant case studies.
