Specialized training and education is required in order to effectively treat OCD and its various subtypes. Although OCD can be a complex and severely impairing disorder, it tends to respond very well to specialized treatment by trained therapists. It is my view that ongoing OCD training and education is essential in order to provide sufferers with the best possible care and treatment. I set aside time in my schedule each week for such training.
Since 2016, I have routinely participated in continuing education trainings and professional development seminars and conferences offered by the International OCD Foundation (www.IOCDF.org). I have participated in over 85 hours of Consultations and Advanced Consultations through the IOCDF's Behaviour Therapy Training Institute (BTTI), led by world renowned experts and faculty in the field of OCD. I also graduated from the IOCDF Adult BTTI.
I attend monthly Anxiety and Depression Association of America (www.ADAA.org) OCD Special Interest Group meetings as well as monthly peer consultation round table discussions with other OCD specialists based in the U.S. I also participate in ongoing self directed professional development.
Since 2021, I have participated in a multitude of I-CBT clinical trainings. Additionally, over the past year I have supplemented these trainings by being part of small group I-CBT consultations led by well known experts in this growing field.
