May's meeting- Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP)
May's meeting topic was Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) which is often used as part of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy treatment for OCD. This involves gradually exposing yourself to the feared situation (or obsession) without engaging in the usual rituals or compulsions, this allows people to face their fears and see that their anxiety becomes more tolerable. (For more info go to- https://www.ocduk.org/overcoming-ocd/accessing-ocd-treatment/exposure-response-prevention/) This might sound tough but research has shown that it can be beneficial! Have you had ERP? What have been your experiences? Do share! 🙂
