This course is fully accredited by IAOTH (International Association of Therapists) and a certificate is provided upon completion. It is a comprehensive overview of OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder). The course is suitable for anyone with an interest in the subject, whether that be from a professional or personal perspective. We look at the nature of OCS, the symptoms, causes, maintenance factors, co-morbidity, treatment, interventions and support strategies. Approached from a Cognitive Behavioural perspective, but other forms of intervention are discussed, along with a number of theories about causal factors for the condition.
The style of teaching is relaxed, informal and professional and throughout the course, students are encouraged to think through issues covered and to discuss with friends, colleagues or associates. Students are also encouraged to get in touch with the lecturer with any questions or queries they may have. The lecturer also welcomes students opinion on any of the points discussed throughout the course.
