About the Course

To provide an understanding of the main diagnostic criteria and hallmarks of this disorder and how to work with it using SFH.

The CPD will include a focus on how to ask pertinent questions to identity OCD thinking styles and behaviours in your clients; when it is part of a normal spectrum and when it has become more problematic. The workshop will also provide an overview of how to incorporate CBT’s exposure and response prevention technique, couched in a SFH way.

The session will include:

  • An in-depth discussion on when symptoms are a problem and when they are not
  • OCD sign and symptoms
  • Common categories and presentations
  • Thinking styles
  • Co-morbid conditions
  • Treatment options
  • CBT – Exposure and response prevention
  • SFH approach to OCD
  • Case studies
  • Q&A

Claire has worked with OCD for 17 years and brings her wealth of experience and knowledge about what to do (and not do) with clients to this valuable CPD.

This CPD is also a module on the AHD.
