OCD treatment research
Adam S. Radomsky, PhD
Anxiety and Obsessive-Compulsive Disorders Laboratory, Dept. of Psychology
Are you bothered by unwanted thoughts, images, or impulses that keep recurring to you, but that you can't stop from coming into your mind? Do you feel driven to repeat some behaviour or repeat something in your mind over and over, in order to feel more comfortable (e.g. repeatedly washing, checking things, and/or counting)? Are these thoughts and behaviours problematic? Do they take up more time than necessary? Have they interfered with significant parts of your life (e.g. work, school, relationships)? If you answered ‘yes’ to any of the above and if you speak English on a daily basis, you may be eligible to participate in an Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD) treatment study, in which all eligible participants will receive twelve sessions of an effective (evidence-based) psychological treatment/therapy for free. Financial compensation will be offered for participation in portions of the research.
- Participants must be 18 years or older, and fluent in English
- Participants will be screened over the telephone
12 sessions of treatment, financial compensation for portions of research
