Understanding and Treating Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder
This presentation will cover the symptoms and cognitive-behavioral model of OCD, as well as the current treatments for this condition. We will review exposure and response prevention, cognitive therapy, and acceptance and commitment therapy.

Saturday December 5th, 9:00 a.m. – 5:30 p.m. PT
Optimizing Exposure Therapy for Anxiety through Inhibitory Learning
Individuals with clinical anxiety and fear comprise a large proportion of many therapists’ caseloads. Although exposure therapy is highly effective for these conditions, many individuals fail to benefit or experience a return of fear at some point after treatment. New directions focus on an inhibitory learning model of fear extinction which points to specific techniques for optimizing short- and long-term gains. This workshop will help attendees understand and apply this model to optimize exposure therapy. The inhibitory learning model will first be described and distinguished from traditional approaches to exposure. Numerous strategies to optimize inhibitory learning will then be introduced and illustrated in detail.

The lecture is free to the public and is being held over Zoom. Click here to view registration form. Please email completed form to elang@unr.edu by Thursday, December 3, 2020**
