ABOUT THE EVENT
This training day will cover evidence-based assessment and treatment for OCD in young people. The focus will be on delivering an effective behavioural intervention, with time spent exploring some common challenges that clinicians encounter during CBT for OCD. We will briefly look at what a cognitive intervention involves and when this approach might be indicated in work with young people.
Delegates will require a basic knowledge of CBT. This can include low intensity training.
