SESSION V: Effective and Respectful Treatment for Scrupulous Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder

Scrupulosity refers to OCD as manifest with religious or moral fears. Although exposure and response prevention (ERP) is an effective first-line treatment for OCD, scrupulosity is associated with several clinical challenges and poorer outcomes. Patients often feel trapped between choosing their faith on the one hand and their mental health on the other. Scrupulous patients may either abandon religion altogether because they cannot reconcile religion and mental health, or reject potentially effective treatment options after being encouraged by clinicians to violate basic requirements of their faith. Both are particularly unfortunate because they are not necessary. Instead of pitting religion against mental health, ERP can be tailored for scrupulosity in a way that respects patient values without sacrificing treatment efficacy. This talk will review modifications related to assessment, the therapeutic stance, motivation and treatment rationale, addressing uncertainty and risk related to sin, and ways to collaborate effectively with clergy, as well as specific adjustments in the execution of cognitive-behavioral techniques.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

After this lecture, registrants will be able to:

  1. Identify unique features, considerations, and challenges that arise when treating scrupulosity.
  2. Identify strategies to enhance exposure and response prevention for scrupulosity.
  3. Recognize approaches to fighting scrupulosity in a manner consistent with their religious and moral values.

SESSION VI: Sexual Obsessions in Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder

Sexual obsessions in OCD are frequently misunderstood and misdiagnosed. Further, treating sexual obsessions in OCD differs from the treatment of other forms of OCD due to heightened feelings of shame surrounding symptoms and the covert nature of ritualizing behaviors. This presentation provides clinicians with essential tools needed to successfully diagnose and help clients suffering from unwanted, intrusive thoughts of a sexual nature. It provides guidance on measures to employ during assessment and a discussion of differential diagnoses. It describes how to provide treatment, using Exposure and Ritual Prevention (Ex/RP), along with additional techniques. Also included are examples of pedophile OCD (sometime called P-OCD) and sexual orientation OCD (called SO-OCD or H-OCD), along with examples of in vivo and imaginal exposures.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

After this lecture, registrants will be able to:

  1. Identify most common forms of S-OCD.
  2. Differentiate S-OCD from a paraphilia or other sexual concern.
  3. Describe key treatment strategies for S-OCD.

Target Audience

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