14.00 – 20.00 CEST Time
Exposure with response prevention (E/RP) is the golden standard treatment for Obsessive Compulsive DIsorder (OCD – APA, 2017). However, approximately 50% of patients does not show a complete remission to this treatment (Stanley & Turner , 1996; Baer & Minichiello, 1998). The explanation probably lies on the difficulty in accessing emotions and cognitions and in general to establish an adequate therapeutic alliance, for those patients who have dysfunctional personality traits.
Recently, empirical evidence has led to various conceptualizations of obsessive functioning in the Schema Therapy framework (Gross 2012; Basile et al., 2017). From these evidences it emerges that OCD pervasiveness of is associated with Early Maladaptive Schemas (EMS) such as emotional deprivation, social isolation, abuse, failure, emotional inhibition, submission and punitiviness. The data also suggest that the pervasiveness of the Punitive Parent Mode, which well represents the internalization of normative or moral instances, and which may be the basis of the high sensitivity to fear of guilt, constitutes one of the most important vulnerability factors in the development of OCD. (Mancini, 2016).
The Workshop aims to present the theoretical framework that explains Obsessive Compulsive Disorder in terms of historical vulnerability. Starting from clinical examples, it will be illustrated the conceptualization model of obsessive disorder according with the ST framework. Through experiential exercises, and through role-plays, the main ST techniques in the treatment of OCD will be showed. In particular, interventions aimed at modifying the sensitivity to guilt will be presented, both by reducing its pervasiveness, and by working on the acceptance of the possibility and the right to make mistakes. Participants will experience in practice the application of some of the main therapeutic strategies of ST, fine-tuned for the intervention on the obsessive patient, in particular imaginative techniques, such as Imagery Assessment and Imagery Rescripting, empathic confrontation, limited reparentig and chair work.
