SESSION III: Don’t Try Harder, Try Different: Motivating OCD Patients

You likely know about CBT and ERP for anxiety and OCD. But, knowing it and explaining it are two different things. Plus, you also have to motivate people to do the things that are difficult. If people with anxiety are guilty of anything, it is trying harder at things that are already not working, so sometimes instead of trying harder, we have to do something else - we have to try something different. If trying harder made things work better, then our patients would not need us. But anxiety and OCD send a false message and people fall for it all of the time. We are here to change that. To meld these two concepts together, we have to motivate people to do the things that are difficult and have them look forward to the experience. In this talk we will see how to motivate people to do the difficult stuff, while at the same time helping them to recognize where they get stuck and why so they can make the changes they need quickly and efficiently and not have to rely on us to be the agents of change - they can be their own agents. 

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

After this lecture, registrants will be able to:

  1. Describe 7 common themes in the presentation of anxiety-based disorders.
  2. Define the 5 common Safety Seeking Behaviors that actually help to maintain anxiety in the long term, even if they seem to be helpful in the moment
  3. Apply the use of the 7 common themes and the recognition of the 5 common Safety Seeking Behaviors to their introduction of CBT and ERP to their patients.

 

SESSION IV: Neurosurgery and Other Novel Interventions for Refractory OCD

Most individuals with OCD respond to standard treatment, including exposure and response prevention therapy and medications that act on serotonin.  However, only a little more than one-third of suffers obtain complete remission, and approximately 10% of OCD sufferers continue to experience severe and disabling symptoms, despite receiving maximal conventional treatment.  This presentation will cover treatment options that clinicians can consider to target residual symptoms in those who have responded partially, including medication strategies and non-invasive neuromodulation, including ketamine and transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS). For the 10% who remain severely affected, we will discuss neurosurgical interventions, including deep brain stimulation (DBS) and lesioning procedures. 

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

After this lecture, registrants will be able to:

  1. Formulate a treatment plan for OCD sufferers who continue to experience symptoms despite receiving maximal, standard treatments.
  2. Name three barriers to access to neurosurgical interventions for OCD and develop strategies to mitigate these barriers.
  3. List the inclusion and exclusion criteria for deep brain stimulation for severe and disabling, refractory OCD.

Target Audience

This activity is intended for physicians, nurses, psychologists, social workers, counselors, and other mental health professionals.
