Access Talking Therapies

Get Urgent Help

A unique opportunity to learn from the leading expert in OCD

  • Do you find it challenging to work with OCD?
  • Is it difficult to make sense of numerous obsessions and compulsions?
  • Do you struggle to fit everything into a meaningful formulation?
  • Have you found that engaging clients in treatment is difficult?

Practitioners often find Obsessive Compulsive Disorder a challenging disorder to assess, formulate and treat. Professor Salkovskis will provide salient insights into improving your understanding of OCD. Formulation is essential to devising a coherent treatment plan, yet practitioners frequently struggle with this aspect of the therapeutic process. Learn to become proficient in developing a helpful formulation, which aids both the client and the practitioner. Drop outs are unfortunately commonplace in OCD treatment, and even when clients do engage, progress can be limited if treatment is not delivered effectively. Learn advanced techniques in order to gain your clients’ commitment, and to achieve recovery.

Enrich your clinical practice by benefitting from the knowledge, experience and wisdom of Professor Salkovskis. You will also have an opportunity to ask Professor Salkovskis any specific questions.

Professor Salkovskis is renowned worldwide for his passion and contribution to both clinical research and practice. His CBT models for OCD and Health Anxiety are used extensively by practitioners across the

He led the South London & Maudsley and national outpatient OCD service.

He is now Professor of Clinical Psychology and Applied Science at the University of Bath where he is also the director of a joint University/NHS national specialist anxiety disorder clinic and Programme Director for the Clinical Psychology Doctorate Programme at Bath.
