Description

The OCD Counseling Certificate Program consists of three online self-study courses and the Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder Counseling Certificate

This comprehensive OCD Training Certificate Program provides an in-depth examination of the etiological and maintaining factors of OCD.  As OCD often co-occurs with other mental health conditions, this training provides training on differential diagnosis, as well as guidance on how to develop comprehensive treatment plans when individuals experience co-morbid OCD, including the use of exposure and response prevention (ERP).

A review of current literature and case examples highlights the treatment challenges, including ethical considerations, possible medical complications, recidivism rates, fair treatment projection, and potential long lengths of stay in treatment.

Additionally, the adaptations and considerations for providing quality care in a way that is both trauma-informed and culturally sensitive is emphasized. This intensive training certificate provides clinicians with evidence-based and practical tools to effectively and competently work with individuals with OCD in various treatment settings. 

Courses included with this registration:

  1. Etiology, Assessment and Diagnosis of OCD

  2. Evidence-Based Treatments for OCD: Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP)

  3. Special Consideration: Trauma-Informed, Individualized and Culturally Sensitive Treatment for OCD

Enrollment in this 3-course bundle also includes the Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder Counseling Certificate, which is available to participants once coursework has been completed.

These are non-interactive self-study online courses that consist of over 18 hours of video training content. (6+ per course)
