Prediction Of Outcome In Drug Studies

Ackerman et al. (1994) found older age of onset and baseline depression predicted response to clomipramine. Ravizza et al. (1995) found a worse response to drug treatment (clomipramine or fluoxetine) was predicted by schizotypal personality disorder, presence of compulsions and longer length of illness. Ackerman et al. (1998) found greatest improvement for patients with a history of remissions, no previous drug treatment, more severe OCD and either high or low depression scores. Erzegovesi et al. (2001) found poor insight and a family history of OCD were the best predictors of poor and good drug treatment response respectively.

Exploring EFT

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.
