We examined the efficacy of mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (MBCT) as a complementary treatment option. In a prospective, bicentric, assessor-blinded, randomized, and actively controlled clinical trial, 125 patients with OCD and residual symptoms after cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) were randomized to either an MBCT group (n = 61) or to a psychoeducational group (OCD-EP; n = 64) as an active control condition. At post-treatment, there was no significant benefit of MBCT over OCD-EP with the Yale-Brown-Obsessive-Compulsive Scale (Y-BOCS) as the primary outcome measure, but with the Obsessi...

Another version of this new video-based smartphone intervention involved participants watching their own earlier hand washing By Emma Young Almost half of people with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) have extreme fears about touching something they feel is “contaminated”. This can mean that after touching a doorknob, say, they then feel compelled to scrub their hands, in some cases even until they bleed. Conventional treatments, which often involve a combination of a prescription drug (typically an “SSRI”, such as Prozac) plus cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), help only about 60 per cent of pe...

This is what most people think obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) looks like: washing your hands excessively because you’re a germaphobe. Sometimes, people think it’s also needing to have a neat, orderly home, and checking to see if you locked the door way too many times. And while some of this is true for some people with OCD, it misses the majority of individuals with the illness. As psychologist Martin Hsia, Psy.D, said, “OCD takes many different forms that don’t get written about.” The Many, Many Forms of OCD “To paraphrase Tolstoy, in Anna Karenina, famously speaking abou...

AbstractMany individuals with obsessive-compulsive disorder report that obsessional thoughts and compulsive behaviors are often motivated by “not just right” experiences (NJREs). Individuals who experience NJREs often report symptoms related to symmetry, order, and arrangement (SOA). The current study sought to develop a brief picture-based measure of NJREs (PIC-NR10) within the context of SOA. Three independent studies were conducte d to assess the psychometric properties of PIC-NR10 and its relationship with existing NJRE questionnaires, obsessive-compulsive-symptom relevant measures, and in vivo behavioral N...

Abstract Children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) experience obsessions and compulsions similar to those specified in DSM-5 for obsessive compulsive disorder yet little controlled research exists on treating these behaviours. Thirty-seven children (7-13 years old) were randomly assigned to a 9-week functional behavior-based cognitive behavior therapy (Fb-CBT) or Treatment As Usual. Independent assessors administered measures pre- and post-treatment and at 6-months. Two primary outcome measures indicated statistically significant differences between groups, with large corrected effect sizes (Hedge's g&thin...

Established treatments for obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) include cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT) and selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) medication. Combined treatment may outperform monotherapy, but few studies have investigated this. A total of 49 community-based adults with OCD were randomly assigned to CBT, SSRI, or SSRI+CBT. Sertraline (50–200 mg/day) was given as the SSRI for 52 weeks. A 16-h-manualized individual CBT was delivered over 8 weeks with four follow-up sessions. Assessors were ‘blinded’ to treatment allocation. A preliminary health economic evaluation was conduct...

AbstractEmotion regulation (ER) is a modifiable and transdiagnostic construct that has been widely studied across the affective disorders; however, little research has evaluated the relationship between ER and obsessive –compulsive (OC) features (e.g., OC symptom dimensions, OC symptom severity, and obsessive beliefs). The current study therefore evaluates the relationship between ER difficulties and OC features in the largest sample of adults with OCD to date. Participants (N = 57) completed a clinician-administered diagnostic and OC symptom assessment, as well as self-report questionnaires. Results re...

This study provides a preliminary exploration of factors which differentially predict treatment response to telephone-delivered cognitive behavioural therapy (TCBT) compared to face-to-face CBT (CBT) in a randomised non-inferiority controlled trial of 72 children (aged 11-18 years) with obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). Potential moderator variables, their interaction with treatment group (CBT, TCBT) and baseline levels of OCD severity were entered into separate regression models where the primary outcome measure was the post-intervention Children's Yale-Brown Obsessive-Compulsive Scale total score (CYBOCS). Separa...
