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.

Following this workshop, participants will be able to: 

  • Describe the diagnosis and psychopathology of OCD in youth and adolescents 
  • Discuss empirically supported, psychotherapeutic treatments for youth OCD and compare the efficacy of these treatment approaches 
  • Discuss the theory underlying and the empirical support for EX/RP in youth 
  • Implement psychoeducational treatment components of EX/RP for youth OCD 
  • Construct an in-vivo exposure hierarchy that includes a range of situations that effectively promote learning for youth and adolescent patients 
  • Implement in-vivo exposure 
  • Conduct imaginal exposure to feared consequences 
  • Discuss how and when to modify EX/RP techniques to tailor the therapy to the individual (e.g., developmental issues, co-morbid conditions) 
  • Discuss the basic techniques of EX/RP for treatment of youths and adolescents 
  • Assess youth OCD symptoms and design an appropriate treatment plan
