Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is very effective for adolescents with OCD and Related Disorders (OCRD). However, 30% of youth do not respond well to CBT and only half of youth with OCD who receive CBT reach clinical remission, even when combined with medication (POTS Team, 2004; Ost et al, 2016). Thus, there is much room for improvement for treating adolescents with more severe OCRD. These adolescents are more likely to present with problems that are not well targeted by traditional weekly CBT, including high comorbidity, emotion dysregulation, self-injury, executive functioning deficits, and poor distress tolerance. Process-based CBT (Hofmann & Hayes, 2018) is a principle-driven approach that can more effectively address the factors associated with severe OCRD. Implemented intensively (i.e., longer and more frequent sessions), process-based CBT can especially enhance treatment response. During this presentation, Dr. Micco will describe how best to implement intensive process-based CBT for adolescents with OCRD. Specifically, she will share a comprehensive functional analysis tool that can be used in practice to identify vulnerabilities among adolescents with severe OCRD. She will also demonstrate how to design a tailored treatment plan to address these vulnerabilities. The approach will be illustrated with detailed case examples, with opportunity for discussion and questions.
This activity is intended for physicians, nurses, psychologists, social workers, counselors, and other mental health professionals.
After this lecture, registrants will be able to:
- Describe the vulnerability factors that commonly produce poorer response to CBT among adolescents with severe OCD and Related Disorders.
- Explain how intensive CBT maximizes treatment outcomes in adolescents with OCRD.
- Apply process-based CBT case conceptualization skills to develop a tailored treatment plan for adolescents with severe OCRD.
