An introduction to Exposure and Response Prevention Therapy. Hosted by OCD advocate and NOCD founder, Stephen Smith.
Are you overwhelmed by disturbing, repetitive thoughts that you don't want to be having? Do these thoughts center on things you care about, or values that you hold as an individual? Have they forced you to stop doing things you used to enjoy, or being around people you love?
If this sounds like you, you might be living with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder — an intense anxiety disorder characterized by unwanted intrusive thoughts (obsessions) and fear-minimizing behaviors (compulsions). In this series, OCD advocate and NOCD founder, Stephen Smith, will walk viewers through the recommended treatment for OCD: Exposure and Response Prevention Therapy. He'll bring on doctors, sufferers and friends to explain the process and shed light on their experiences with recovery.
