Patients in our partial hospital program and partial hospital with residential support program participate in daily group therapy sessions. Group sessions cover an array of topics, such as skill building, symptom management, treatment motivation, and more.
Exposure and Response Prevention
Patients participate in two ERP blocks per day as a part of their programming. During this group, our residential counselors assist patients in implementing ERP, the gold-standard treatment for OCD. Patients complete exposure work with staff support, or independently, based on their individualized behavior treatment plan.
- Patients learn to implement ERP within an intensive and specialized OCD and anxiety treatment program
- Patients learn to understand their anxiety and how to react to it
Cognitive Behavior Therapy
During this group, patients learn about evidence-based treatments including ERP and other behavioral techniques, especially as they relate to anxiety and OCD. In addition, this group reviews the basics of cognitive behavior therapy (CBT), cognitive distortions, mood monitoring, and cognitive restructuring, especially as they relate to depression and anxiety.
Group discussion, role-play, and behavior therapy skills increase the patients’ ability to cope and problem solve.
- Patients learn basic and advanced CBT techniques, including the CBT model and cognitive restructuring techniques
- Patients explore challenges that arise when implementing ERP and ways to use CBT techniques to enhance the quality of the ERP session
