Why treatment doesn’t always hit the spot first time

Sunday 18th October 2020
2:30pm - 3:15pm
Presented by
Dr Victoria Bream is a clinical psychologist and clinical lead for the Oxford Health Specialist Psychological Intervention Centre.

Presentation subject

CBT can be powerful and effective and many people have benefitted from this active, evidence-based treatment. Like treatments for other psychological and medical conditions, we cannot expect everyone to benefit from CBT in the same way, and it is not a ‘one size fits all’ therapy. We will look at the factors involved in why CBT might not work as effectively as hoped, including factors related to understanding how OCD works for each individual person, what can happen in the process of therapy.
