Cognitive-Behavior Therapy for Compulsive Checking in OCD
Radomsky, Adam S.; Shafran, Roz; Coughtrey, A. E.; Rachman, S.
Cognitive and Behavioral Practice, v17 n2 p119-131 May 2010
There is substantial evidence for the effectiveness of psychological treatments for OCD, and various approaches have been widely recommended. These approaches tend to be characterized by exposure and response prevention (ERP) and also tend to be applied equally to all forms of OCD. Patients/clients (and some therapists) often find ERP to be a difficult treatment, and both dropout and refusal rates are unacceptably high. Based on specific cognitive conceptualizations of different manifestations of OCD, new and refined cognitive treatment methods are now available. The present article describes a specific cognitively based approach to the treatment of compulsive checking. (Contains 1 table and 1 figure.)
