Service Description

Case conceptualization is a bedrock skill of any competent clinician. However, many graduate programs fall short in developing and nurturing conceptualization skills, instead focusing on rote assessment (i.e., presence or absence of symptoms) which can lead to untailored intervention that misses the mark for clients. This is especially possible in working with OCD, wherein well-meaning clinicians may feel rushed to begin behavioral work (owing to its known efficacy). Without thorough case conceptualization, such clinicians may fail to make critical person-centered adjustments to their approach, leading to treatment dropouts and/or a lack of meaningful gains. This course is centered around reviewing core elements of case conceptualization in working with OCD. Its intention is to equip clinicians with concrete means of developing a thorough case conceptualization to help develop more precision in treatment plans and enhance outcomes for clients. Attendee level: moderate-advanced Cost: $450; There is an extra $15 fee for CEs. Scholarships or reduced prices are available for practitioners who belong to or serve marginalized communities. Please check our "For Professionals and Students" page to apply. Learning Objectives: 1. Understand the importance of case conceptualization in working with OCD and ways in which failure to apply this skill can undermine treatment. 2. Understand and learn how to assess for mechanisms that create vulnerability to OCD and can undermine treatment process. 3. Understand and learn how to assess for mechanisms that perpetuate OCD and can undermine treatment process. Outline: Session 1. Identifying core fears and corresponding core beliefs about thoughts, feelings, sensations, and uncertainty 2. Identifying lack of knowledge and distinguishing reassurance vs. assurance 3. Identifying the role of trauma and potential connection to OCD 4. Identifying how experiential avoidance and perfectionism can hijack treatment. 5. Identifying the role of repetitive negative thinking in perpetuating OCD 6. Identifying self-concept and the role this plays in manifesting and perpetuating OCD
