Dr. Thröstur Björgvinsson presents at the 25th Annual OCD Conference

25 Years of Clinical Research on Family Accommodation and Implications for Treatment

Family accommodation (FA) in OCD was first identified over twenty-five years ago and efforts to measure FA soon followed. Today, FA is known to adversely impact the course of OCD, treatment outcome, quality of life and family/patient functioning. This is a panel of leading clinical researchers in OCD and begins with an overview of FA pediatric /adult outcome studies. Brief presentations by each expert follow: current information on measuring FA in OCD and OCRDs; a tour of a newly launched website where researchers, clinicians and consumers can obtain information and FA measures; evidence-based strategies for family interventions, including novel family approaches for intensive OCD treatment; family interventions for treatment refusers. An interactive Q&A will conclude the presentation.
