You will learn the core strategies of a cognitive therapy intervention that radically and swiftly shifts the client’s point of view regarding both their relationship with OCD and the tactics of change. The principles will be illustrated by brief video clips of a 45-minute initial treatment session from the author's live demonstration at the 2018 Brief Therapy Conference. These will include establishing rapport, developing placebo, generating an outcome picture, dismantling their dysfunctional logical system, and persuading them to adopt the paradoxical frame of reference. The therapist “sets the hook” by ensuring that the client can collaborate on designing paradoxical behavioral experiments as their first homework assignments.

Educational Objectives:

  1. Describe how to instruct a client in logically dismantling the common dysfunctional frames of reference of OCD.
  2. Describe how to establish a new, internally-consistent paradoxical frame of reference.
  3. Explain how to activate “approach” emotions toward anxious uncertainty during exposure.
