Anxiety Disorders and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) can be experienced across the life span – during childhood and throughout adulthood. This interactive, three-day, virtual continuing education program includes presentations on the identification, differential diagnosis, and treatment of anxiety and OCD at different stages of life. The first day of this training will focus on treatment of anxiety in children and adolescents. The second and third days provide an overview of OCD, symptom presentations, and Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) treatment. The workshop includes interactive practice of ERP as well as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) techniques. In addition, strategies to engage and support families in anxiety and OCD evaluation and treatment will be reviewed. Interactive case discussions will highlight anxiety and OCD presentation and treatment in children and adults across the life span from diverse communities and contexts. At the end of this continuing education program, you will be able to incorporate ERP into your evidence based treatment toolkit.
