EMDR in the treatment of OCD and eating disorders


This presentation will familiarize participants with an overview of the assessment, case conceptualization, and methodology involved in the treatment of persons with Obsessive Complusive Disorder (OCD) and Eating Disorders (ED). OCD and ED will be addressed together and will be viewed as Disorders of Obsession and Compulsion. The specific dynamic of each disorder will be clarified. However, description of how the approach presented here is similarly applied to each disorder will be highlighted. The application of EMDR and how it can be used, in conjunction with more traditional Cognitive Behavioral approaches will be the main focus of the presentation
