Group Treatment With Bt And

One RCT found group and individual behaviour therapy were equally efficacious but with a faster response rate for individual therapy (Fals-Stewart et al., 1993). However the individuals were not typical of the OCD population as they were OCD treatment naive and did not have any co-morbid psychiatric conditions. McLean etal. (2001) compared CBT and ERP in a group treatment. Both treatments were superior to a waiting list control, with ERP being slightly more effective than CBT at the end of treatment and at three-month follow up.

Van Noppen etal. (1997) did an uncontrolled study on group and multifamily behavioural treatment for OCD. Patients were not randomised to treatment group and were not severely depressed. Both group treatments showed treatment effects similar to those reported for individual behaviour therapy at post-test and one-year follow-up, suggesting this cost-effective format is worthy of further study.

Exploring EFT

EFT stands for Emotional Freedom Technique. It works to free the user of both physical and emotional pain and relieve chronic conditions by healing the physical responses our bodies make after we've been hurt or experienced pain. While some people do not carry the effects of these experiences, others have bodies that hold onto these memories, which affect the way the body works. Because it is a free and fast technique, even if you are not one hundred percent committed to whether it works or not, it is still worth giving it a shot and seeing if there is any improvement.
