This presentation was originally reviewed on November 2, 2023, and broadcast live online on November 3, 2023, from 1:45 PM – 3:15 PM ET. 

The views and opinions expressed by this presenter in this lecture are their own, and do not represent the views of Sheppard Pratt.

    While there are a number of disorders that are related to OCD, they are not necessarily part of the disorder. Dr. Poskar will be speaking about the differences and similarities among the disorders that fall under the category of OCD and Related Disorders. OCD and the related disorders, while similar, will have different needs for pharmacology and psychotherapy as far as approach and implementation. This presentation will discuss what distinguishes each disorder and how the treatment needs could be similar or different for the related disorders a patient may face.
