Cognitive Behaviour Therapy Treatment for Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD) and Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD)

June 22, 2020

Facilitator: Noah Lazar, Ph.D., C.Psych.

This training is suitable for: Mental Health Professionals, Medical Professionals and Direct Service Workers

Description: CBT is a highly efficacious treatment for GAD, which focuses on modifying thoughts, behaviours and beliefs related to worry and anxiety. CBT for GAD is often a more complex treatment due to the probabilistic-nature and pervasiveness of worry. In the first part of this workshop, we will focus on CBT models and conceptualizations of GAD. We will also address cognitive restructuring techniques, including adaptations to thought records, probability re-estimation, and challenging beliefs about worry. Behavioural techniques, such as exposure and response prevention to uncertainty and imaginal exposure, such as problem-solving and relaxation techniques, will be discussed.

In the second part of the workshop, we will focus on CBT treatment for OCD. CBT treatment for OCD is highly behavioural, focusing on exposing clients to obsessive thoughts, while modifying and eliminating their compulsive behaviours. We will focus on CBT conceptualizations for multiple presentations of OCD, such as obsessions and compulsions related to contamination, checking, counting and disturbing images and urges. We will describe and demonstrate cognitive techniques to challenge obsessional thinking, as well as the utility of compulsive behaviour. Exposure and response prevention, as well as behavioural experiments, will also be described. Common difficulties in treatment, including working with obsessional thoughts where there are no obvious compulsive behaviours, will also be discussed. The workshop will consist of a didactic presentation that will be supplemented with case examples and role play exercises.

Learning Objectives:
CBT Conceptualization of GAD and OCD
Utilization of cognitive restructuring techniques in these populations
Utilization of exposure and response prevention in these populations
