Assessment and management of obsessive compulsive disorder part 2.jpg

This is a substantial revision of a previous module by Dr Amit Nigam, Dr Lynne Drummond, Dr Joanne Farrow, Dr Ali Al-Allaq, Dr Sanjay Nelson and Professor Naomi A Fineberg. The authors acknowledge their contribution.

In the first module of this series, Assessment and management of obsessive compulsive disorder: Part 1, we looked at the prevalence, various aetiological theories and the differing diagnostic and assessment tools of obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD).

OCD is a prevalent, chronic and disabling disorder characterised by obsessional thoughts and compulsive behaviours (APA, 2013).

Although effective psychological and pharmacological treatments are available, delays in diagnosis and treatment of the disorder occur.

Better recognition and improved access to evidence-based treatment are needed. Designed for psychiatrists and mental health workers in general adult, forensic, old age and child and adolescent psychiatry, this module will take the reader through treatment options and recently published guidelines on treating OCD.
