SESSION I: How Good Do You Have to Be?: Exploring Moral Scrupulosity in OCD

Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is a condition characterized by unwanted intrusive thoughts and time-consuming ritualized behaviors.  Common presentations of this disorder may include struggling with uncertainty about contamination, risk of causing harm, and unacceptable taboo thoughts, but underlying many of these symptoms is a debilitating fear of moral failure.  It would be wrong to take a risk that might harm myself or others.  Religious scrupulosity, or obsessions about one’s religious faith, involve excessive concern around perfectly following the rules of one’s religious tradition.  In moral scrupulosity, society’s norms and values mirror religious expectations even in the absence of religion.  Identifying the specific obsessions and compulsions in a person with OCD whose primary concern is that with being a “bad” person and his core fear is the same, can be a clinical challenge.  This lecture will highlight the various ways morality obsessions present in OCD and how clinicians can effectively implement the same or similar evidence-based treatments that are effective for the disorder as a whole.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

After this lecture, registrants will be able to:

  1. Recognize forms of moral scrupulosity in OCD.
  2. Identify compulsions found in moral scrupulosity.
  3. Explain guidelines for constructing ERP interventions for moral obsessions.

SESSION II: Shaping Motivation and Flexibility in OCD: Integrating ERP and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy

Epidemiological studies have estimated a lifetime prevalence rate of 28.8% for anxiety disorders (Kessler et al, 2005), and a recent meta-analysis of 87 studies across 44 countries estimated the global current prevalence of anxiety disorders at 7.3% (4.8–10.9%, adjusted for methodological differences across studies; Baxter, Scott, Vos, & Whiteford, 2012).  While exposure-based treatment for anxiety and OCD in youth and adult populations has robust empirical support, there is room for improvement. In terms of outcomes, intent-to-treat analyses suggest that approximately 1 in 5 individuals drop out of exposure treatment (Hofmann and Smits, 2008; Ong et al. 2016), and a significant of proportion of youth either do not improve or relapse (eg Ginsburg et al., 2013; 2018).  Moreover, clinicians are unlikely to use exposure-based treatment even when it is needed (Freihart et al, 2004; Deacon et al., 2013; Sars & Van Minnen, 2015), due to their own experiential avoidance (Meyer et al., 2014; Scher, Herbert & Forman 2015). To complicate matters, simply adding ACT to ERP does not lead to demonstrably improved outcomes (Twohig et al., 2018). So, while exposure works, it could work better, and clinicians could get much more skilled and flexible in its use. Very likely, this will take a patient-centered “microanalytic approach” (Twohig et al., 2018) to improve outcomes of exposure-based approaches for individual clients in their specific contexts. 

This workshop for clinicians with some experience with either Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) or Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) will explore how to use ACT to enhance exposure-based treatment through supporting curiosity, willingness, and flexibility.  Specifically, the presenter will discuss how to incorporate specific ACT strategies into exposure to strengthen inhibitory learning in exposure-based treatment. Clinical examples will be used to illustrate therapeutic techniques, in addition to the workshop’s didactic content.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

After this lecture, registrants will be able to:

  1. Describe how an approach to exposure based on ACT differs from exposure conducted from a traditional habituation rationale
  2. Discuss engaging clients using valuing as action and direction to “contextualize” exposure and place exposure-based tasks under appetitive control
  3. Identify the DNA-V model and the three functional classes of behavior it addresses

Target Audience

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