Efficacy of Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy in Pediatric Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder: A Meta-Analysis
This course is based upon material published in the Medical Science Monitor and is available as an open-access article.
Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) is the only psychological therapy that has been demonstrated to be effective in treating pediatric OCD in many studies. CBT refers to a class of interventions that were developed from the basic premise that psychological disorders are maintained by cognitive and behavioral factors. CBT for OCD in youth involves 4 primary components: psycho-education, cognitive training, mapping of OCD, and exposure with response prevention, which aims to weaken the association between obsessions and increased anxiety, and between compulsions and the relief of anxiety. Despite the positive outcome of CBT on OCD treatment, the results delivered by current articles are inconsistent and not comprehensive, mainly because of the huge variations among studies in sample sizes, various ethnic groups, and different outcome assessment tools used. To generate a more comprehensive evaluation of the efficacy of CBT on the treatment of OCD, we carried out this meta-analysis covering 13 studies and 415 OCD patients.
This course on using CBT to treat OCD is designed for social workers, professional counselors, psychologists, nurses, and substance abuse counselors, who do clinical work. This course is appropriate for intermediate and advanced level practitioners who wish to increase their knowledge of the efficacy of CBT in treating OCD. Psychologists and social workers can benefit by enhancing their clinical skill set using CBT by applying research-supported practices. The course material includes a literature review of interventions. It may also be useful for licensed clinicians who require clinical continuing education courses for license renewal.
The course is based on a journal article that includes research. It contains statistical analysis and data that some clinicians enjoy reading and others do not. A major benefit of reading research-based articles for continuing education is they provide practitioners with the latest findings in their field.
