ADAA Webinar: OCD & Strategic Pressure: Working with Treatment Resistant Children & Adult Children Living at Home

September 22, 2017 | 12 noon – 1:00 pm ET
OCD & Strategic Pressure: Working with Treatment Resistant Children & Adult Children Living @Home

Webinar Description:

As therapists we have all experienced the painful difficulty of seeing sufferers in extreme distress and having difficulty functioning, who are refusing to follow through with treatment at any level. When confronted with a treatment refusing child, the stakes seem even higher because we know that with each passing year of dysfunction, the odds that child will recover begin to decrease. Sending the treatment refusing child to an intensive OCD inpatient program may seem like a viable solution, but such programs can be defeated by the treatment refusing child, because legally, they can’t force anyone to do treatment. We consider Strategic Pressure to be the treatment of last resort, when all else has failed.

Strategic Pressure is a treatment approach that can be used by therapists to work with the parents of treatment refusing children to pressure them into treatment. It takes into account the difficulty the parents have had with enabling and focuses as much upon helping them to gradually change their behaviors as much as the child’s. It can be used for any dependent child living at home, whether 4 or 36.

Murderers, Pedophiles, & Other Harm Concerns: Living with Possibilities

Featuring: Jonathan Grayson, PhD
Licensed Psychologist
Director, Grayson LA Treatment Center for Anxiety & OCD
Adjunct Clinical Assistant Professor of Psychiatry & Behavioral Sciences, University of Southern California
This webinar will focus on the many different types of harm OCD, from hit and run to preventing potential accidents to fears of actively harming/molesting others. For each manifestation, the rationale/reasons to risk treatment will be discussed. This will be followed by designing treatment for the different types of harm OCD. This will not only include descriptions of ERP protocols, but how to develop therapeutic scripts to accompany exposure and when and how to incorporate ACT components into treatment.
At the end of this session, participants will be able to:
  1. Describe a minimum of three different manifestations of harm OCD that differ in the intentionality and responsibility experienced by the sufferer.
  2. Convince sufferers from harm OCD to risk and cope with the possibility of their worst fears coming true.
  3. Design and implement an ERP protocol for different forms of harm OCD
Presentation level: Intermediate/Advanced.  This webinar is eligible for 1.5 CEs.
