This presentation was originally reviewed on October 21, 2021, and broadcast live online on October 22, 2021, from 9:00 AM - 10:30 AM ET.
The views and opinions expressed by this presenter in this lecture are their own, and do not represent the views of Sheppard Pratt.
Although OCD is conceptualized as an individual disorder, its impact on interpersonal relationships is considerable. Patients may experience difficulties with cultivating fulfilling connections and sustaining them over time. This presentation will outline the impact of OCD symptoms on relationships across multiple domains, including romantic partnership, friendship, and family. Clinicians will learn how to assess for relational impacts, include loved ones in treatment, and provide clients with tools derived from evidence-based practice to mitigate the impact of symptoms on relationships.
This activity is intended for physicians, nurses, psychologists, social workers, counselors, and other mental health professionals.
After this lecture, registrants will be able to:
- Demonstrate conceptual understanding of Relationship OCD (ROCD) and how it manifests in various relationship types. Identify the evidence-based augmentation options when first-line treatment is insufficient.
- Identify relational impacts of OCD as shown by research.
- Apply the principles of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and Exposure and Response Prevention to generate a hierarchy of values-based relational exposures for individuals with OCD.
