Workshop Description:

Pediatric Obsessive Compulsive Disorder is a common, frequently misunderstood, childhood disorder. Combining directive play therapy with exposure therapy is an effective way to increase children’s and teens’ motivation to complete exposure work and decrease avoidance. This workshop will provide an overview of pediatric Obsessive Compulsive Disorder and its gold standard of treatment, Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP). It will help participants understand how to integrate play therapy and exposure therapy to create successful exposures.

Learning Outcomes:

Objection 1: Participants will be able to identify individuals with possible OCD in their play therapy practice

Objective 3: Participants will be able to describe 3 play therapy techniques to help clients externalize OCD
