Treatment Preferences for OCD

OCD-UK Research

OCD Research

If you use social media then you will no doubt be bombarded with requests from clinical psychologists and psychology students wanting you to take part in their research projects, and more often than not, those research proposals are for the minority, not the majority and are frequently for the benefit of the researcher, not the wider community, which is why OCD-UK have changed the way we list and support requests for research participation…. more on that at the conference in November.

In the meantime we are fully supportive of this research by two friends of OCD-UK, clinical psychologists, Josie Millar and Professor Paul Salkovskis who are currently conducting two studies that will offer real value to the vast majority of people with Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder.  So if you have a clinical diagnosis of OCD please do read below and if you can find a few minutes to take part in one, or both of these studies.

The first is an online study which aims to understand how people with OCD would prefer to receive CBT 

Who can take part and what will it involve?

Anyone who experiences OCD as their main problem can take part in this study.   If you choose to take part you will be asked to complete an online questionnaire which will take approximately 20-60 minutes.   If you take part you can enter a prize draw for 1 of 2 £50 AMAZON vouchers, if you choose to complete all questions you will be sent a £5 electronic AMAZON voucher (which of course you are welcome to donate to OCD-UK).

For more information and to take part please visit the Bath Psychology website here.

 

The second study aims to understand what makes CBT for OCD successful and what factors are involved in relapse

Who can take part and what will it involve?

We are seeking people who are experiencing OCD as their main problem who have had CBT that was helpful to them, but they have since had a relapse in their OCD.  You will be asked to take part in an interview over the phone and to complete some questionnaires online. If you choose to take part you will be sent a £5 electronic AMAZON voucher (which of course you are welcome to donate to OCD-UK). If you would like to find out more information about taking part in either research project, or have any questions please contact Josie via email: jfam20@bath.ac.uk
