Obsessive Compulsive Disorder is a unique diagnosis that requires a specialized approach. Having knowledge of this disorder’s characteristics and evidenced-based treatment approaches is essential to supporting clients who have OCD. 

This workshop, Diane Bigler, LCSW,  will review the diagnostic criteria for OCD, paying special attention to the main characteristics of obsessions and compulsions. Learners will discover assessment procedures that elicit core symptomatology. CBT and ERP will be presented as the preferred, evidenced-based approaches to treating this disorder and learners will define proper treatment approaches and interventions.


  • Examine diagnostic criteria for OCD and formulate methods of case conceptualization.
  • Distinguish between obsessions and compulsions and explain methods of clinical assessment.
  • Formulate evidenced-based treatment approaches and articulate methods of targeting OCD symptoms and behaviors.

Course materials are only available to enrolled students.
