Workshop Description: 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.
