About the Exposure and response prevention (ERP) category

“Exposure and response prevention therapy [ERP] is a behavioral therapy technique that involves exposing patients to a triggering stimulus (the exposure) and then preventing their typical response (response prevention) to said stimulus.” (source: American Medical Association/JAMA Psychiatry).

“[…] exposure and response prevention (ERP) is the most effective treatment for obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD)” (source: the journal of Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapy/PubMed).

This category is for discussing ERP and for people to share their experiences with it in terms of treating different types of OCD, and share information or studies on ERP and its efficacy on treating OCD.
