Description

Helping professionals are not always able to recognize, diagnose, and treat obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) in patients. This micro-course will provide learners with the tools to do so, giving them a basic understanding of what the multitude of OCD presentations look like, including examples of these differing presentations. Further, the origins, brain differences, and DSM-5-TR criteria of OCD are reviewed, including the four other obsessive-compulsive disorders (body dysmorphia, hoarding, trichotillomania, and excoriation). Obsessions are differentiated from compulsions, as well as OCD from obsessive compulsive personality disorder (OCPD), and OCD doubting from undiagnoseable doubting. The basics of treatment for OCD are reviewed to best support those with the illness.
