The intrusive thoughts and repetitive behaviors characteristic of OCD can profoundly interrupt a family's life. This institute will summarize the diagnosis, conceptualization, and treatment of this disorder. Specific presentations of OCD, including childhood-onset, perinatal, and relationally focused subtypes, will be overviewed. Recent family-based approaches (e.g. positive family interaction therapy, partner assisted exposure/response prevention) will also be described in detail.
