Featuring: Jonathan Grayson, PhD

Director, Grayson LA Treatment Center for Anxiety & OCD

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.
