- The American Psychological Association has listed evidence-based approaches that can be supplemented with the ACT model.
- Exposure and response prevention treatment plans are effective for obsessive-compulsive repertoires and can be used as the committed action component for the treatment.
- The whole ACT model is greater than the sum of its parts. When treatment resistance occurs, the other five parts of the hexagon model can supplement and assist the treatment plan.
In this video, we will briefly explore the use of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy for obsessive-compulsive disorder. During Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, a clinician will of course do a proper assessment of the behavioral concerns and then will create a treatment plan.
Effective treatment plans are highlighted by the American Psychological Association Division 12 Society of Clinical of Psychology. And on their website, www.div12.org, you can find many empirically supported treatments. On that site, you can search evidence-based approaches by diagnosis. And if you go to that website and search for the evidence-based treatment for obsessive-compulsive disorder, you will see that exposure and ritual prevention is strongly research supported.
