In particular, Exposure and Response Prevention  (ERP) will be examined in depth as a primary treatment for OCD. Participants will learn the components of this treatment and how to apply them to various types of OCD. Case examples will be used to highlight the implementation of ERP and the barriers to successful  treatment outcomes.
