This course explores the diagnostic criteria for Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD) and Obsessive-Compulsive Personality Disorder (OCPD), and discusses efficacy of various treatments for OCD and OCPD.
About this course
Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD) and Obsessive-Compulsive Personality Disorder (OCPD) are said to affect two to three percent of the population for OCD (that is: more than 500,000 Australians) and one percent for OCPD, although three to ten percent of the psychiatric population is said to have it. Many cases probably go untreated. This course is about understanding what is constituted in each disorder, and how you can recognise the symptoms in clients and others. Upon successful completion of the course, you will be able to: recall the diagnostic criteria for OCD and OCPD when you see them in clients or others; name the differences between OCD and OCPD; identify the suspected causes of OCD and OCPD; discuss the efficacy of various treatments for OCD and OCPD.
