Anxiety disorders, including (but not limited to) OCD, lure clients into behaving in ways that are counterproductive to reducing their anxiety. Neuroscience provides insight into why this is the case, and provides compelling rationales for the utilization of evidence-based anxiety treatments such as Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP). Such psychoeducation can be invaluable for clients, who often struggle with maintaining motivation to complete distressing treatments such as ERP. This seminar provides an easy-to-understand explanation of the neural bases of OCD and other anxiety disorders, and connects brain science with evidence-based interventions for anxiety and OCD.
