Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Obsessive Compulsive Disorder: An Introductory Online Course - Massachusetts General Hospital Psychiatry Academy

Cognitive behavioral therapy is the gold standard for OCD treatment. Specifically, Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) teaches you to reduce ineffective worrying, intrusive thoughts, and time-consuming compulsions and replace them with healthy coping skills. Learning to apply cognitive, behavioral and acceptance-based skills can be extremely important to helping you take back control of your life.

Treating Early Attachment Wounding: Somatic Interventions to Enhance EMDR Effectiveness - EMDRIA

Are you finding yourself stuck in old patterns or negative self-concepts? Do you find yourself repeatedly with people or in situations that echo the past? Interactions between children and their primary attachment figures result in procedural learning that informs how they think, feel and behave. This learning, which is held in place by the body, provides a template for future relationships. Treating attachment trauma allows you to release from the grip of maladaptive procedural learning and be able to allow for healthy, fulfilling and meaningful relationships to enter your life.
