Achieving Optimum OCD Therapy Effects: Shared Words of Wisdom

We will share insights from the perspectives of the Patient and Behavior Therapist (BT) to enhance OCD therapy. The format will include a dialogue between presenters, plus audience participation. Here is a possible dialogue topic: BT: Homework is critical for treatment, and when it's not completed, BTs can feel helpless to help you. Patient: Intellectually I know homework is critical, but it's hard. I may even fill out my homework in the car just before session. BT: We can tell when homework is completed in the parking lot. It's more productive to openly discuss homework difficulties.
