OCD is a chronic, debilitating and prevalent psychiatric illnesses (2-3% of the population). Exposure with response prevention is the most effective treatment with high success rates (75%) yet a treatment gap of nearly 60% exists. Barriers to treatment often include access to care, costs of treatment and stigma with minorities especially susceptible to this gap. Presentation, discussion, case studies and interactive exercises will focus on ways technology is changing the treatment landscape for OCD both as a self-help medium and with a live real-time therapist (tele-therapy).
