Volunteer P – OCD Treatment

© Helen Lesser 2009

The following is a transcript of a recording of one session with a volunteer patient, provided in front of the students on the Practical Course, Autumn 2008.

Patient ‘P’ suffered severe OCD. Her IMR was minute throughout the treatment, requiring constant reminders and repeating of questions.

The following treatment transcript is provided for two purposes – firstly, it illustrates how gentle reminders and prompts were used to ensure treatment could still be successfully completed; and, secondly as an example of one of the ways of progressing when ‘punishment’ is the major purpose/reason for a symptom.
