A Training Course for Mental Health Professionals

The Center for the Treatment and Study of Anxiety at the University of Pennsylvania will offer an intensive 1-day training workshop in the use of Exposure and Response Prevention (EX\RP) Therapy for Pediatric Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD). This workshop is open to licensed mental health professionals and those working under a license. Because of its intensive format and small faculty-to-participant ratio, enrollment will be limited. Also, due to the advanced nature of this workshop, we prefer participants who have prior experience with cognitive-behavioral therapy.

This intensive workshop will:

  • Introduce participants to the theory underlying and the empirical support for EX\RP for children
  • Provide instruction in the basic techniques of EX\RP to treat OCD in children and adolescents
  • Provide guidelines for how and when to modify EX\RP techniques to tailor the therapy to the individual child (developmental challenges, co-morbid conditions etc.)
  • Allow participants to practice the techniques of EX\RP under expert guidance
  • Use excerpts from videotaped sessions conducted by experts to illustrate how to use EX\RP with children and adolescents
  • Include case vignettes and discussion of when and how to implement EX\RP with children
  • Provide a certificate of completion
  • Allow eligible participants to sign up for CE credit
