Approaching treatment for scrupulosity (OCD with a religious or moral focus) can feel threatening to the client's value system and, without care, premature termination and poor treatment outcomes can result. Scrupulosity can be effectively treated in a way that is sensitive to the client's spiritual and religious values. This presentation will help therapists and individuals with scrupulosity to navigate treatment in a manner that leverages empirically-supported treatments for OCD and also respects the clients values and faith tradition. An emphasis will be given to practical application.
