Obsessive-Compulsive and Related Disorders: Diagnosis and Treatment

 

Obsessive-compulsive and related disorders, a new diagnostic group of disorders in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders™ (APA, 2013), can be severely debilitating. This group of disorders can significantly impact a person’s quality of life physically, mentally, socially, and occupationally. In addition to the amount of time consumed by the symptoms of these disorders, they are often persistent when left untreated. In this course, you will deepen your understanding of the subtleties of each of the various mental disorders in this category, the most prominent being obsessive-compulsive disorder. You also will navigate through both the pharmacological and non-pharmacological gold standards of assessment, diagnosis, and treatment. The course will highlight best and emerging practices, as well current trends in research for this diagnostic category. Through interactive scenarios and detailed examples, you will gain a deeper understanding of how you should implement these in your own setting. This training is designed for intermediate to advanced level mental healthcare professionals who work with individuals with obsessive-compulsive and related disorders in a variety of healthcare settings. DSM™ and DSM-5™ are registered trademarks of the American Psychiatric Association. The American Psychiatric Association is not affiliated with nor endorses this course.
