Meet Our Team Of OCD Psychiatrists

Overview

Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) is a type of therapy that focuses on helping people cope with and alter their problematic beliefs, behaviours, and emotions. The treatment you're doing is called Exposure and Ritual Prevention, and it's a sort of cognitive-behavioral therapy for obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). The goal of this treatment is to break two types of OCD associations. The first is the connection between distressing sensations and the items, situations, or thoughts that cause them. The second link is between engaging in ritualistic conduct and a reduction in distress. The treatment we provide will disrupt the automatic link that exists between anxious sensations and ritual behaviours. It will also teach you to avoid ritualizing when you are stressed. Cadabams has a long history of employing CBT for obsessive compulsive disorder to help people live a better life.

What is the definition of exposure?

Exposure is a technique in which you purposefully encounter objects or circumstances that make you feel uncomfortable and stay in them long enough for your anxiety to subside on its own.

What is the purpose of exposure in OCD CBT?

The purpose of exposure isn’t to get you to do what other individuals who aren’t OCD do. Exposure exercises are designed to help you overcome your compulsions and obsessions.
