BT18 Clinical Demonstration 10 - The Art of Persuasion: Changing the Mind on OCD - Reid Wilson, PhD
Original Program Date :
Those who succumb to the spell of obsessive-compulsive disorder conjure up a potion of avoidance and resistance as their only means of control. How do you move someone toward anxious uncertainty when their heart, mind and soul are committed to finding certainty and comfort? Participants will learn a persuasive strategy--built out of whole cloth within the first session--that will frame the entire treatment protocol. Participants will see how to collaborate with the client in designing behavioral experiments to test out this strategy.
