2021 Virtual OCD-UK Conference - Welcome to Hotel OCD-UK, flying the flag for recovery!

The Sussex OCD Clinic: Experiences of offering CBT for OCD in an NHS-based service and learning what mindfulness-based approaches might have to offer

 Broadcast live on Sunday 28th November 2021
Dr Clara Strauss, Deputy Director of Research in Sussex Partnership NHS Foundation Trust where she leads the OCD Clinic.

Presentation subject

The Sussex OCD Clinic offers CBT to adults experiencing OCD within Sussex Partnership NHS Foundation Trust, with an emphasis on Exposure and Response Prevention. This is offered at different levels of intensity, depending on people’s needs. This talk will outline the Sussex OCD Clinic approach, share our outcomes and highlight strengths and limitations. The clinic also has a focus on research as a way to improve outcomes as we know that not everyone benefits from CBT for OCD. In the clinic we have explored the potential of mindfulness-based CBT approaches for OCD. In this talk I will also share why we have been interested in the potential of mindfulness-based approaches for OCD and findings from our research. There will be an opportunity for asking questions and sharing reflections.
