Persuading OCD clients to adopt a new frame of reference is the therapist's primary task. Altering perception--not adding technique--helps them change directions, because belief always trumps exposure practice. Participants will learn a persuasive strategy--built out of whole cloth within the first session--that will frame the entire treatment protocol.

Educational Objectives:

  1. Explain the two primary, though dysfunctional, objectives of clients with obsessive-compulsive disorder.
  2. Defend the importance of altering perception, as opposed to utilizing technique, to help clients with OCD.
