Exposure & Response Prevention TherapY

Exposure and Response Prevention Therapy (Ex/RP) is a highly effective evidence-based treatment protocol for OCD that involves learning how to tolerate the anxious thoughts and resisting the urge to engage in the compulsive behaviors.

Sometimes it's helpful to think of this approach as reprogramming your internal alarm system to recognize when you are truly in danger rather than when you experience false alarms due to triggers.

It is generally a 12 week protocol that is immensely successful.
