Teaching and training

We regularly host teaching and skills-based training events on OCD at both at our Maudsley site and in-house at CAMH services across the country.

Our training events focus on dissemination of our manualised clinic protocol, which has been evaluated through various audits and more formally in two RCTs (Mataix-Cols et al., 2014; Turner et al., 2014). Our standard full day training events will cover:

  • Recognition and assessment
  • Evidence base for CBT treatment
  • Key components of CBT treatment using a case example
  • Brief overview of pharmacological treatment
  • Challenging issues and how to overcome these
  • Working with common comorbidities
  • Small group discussion and role plays

Our training events usually focus on either OCD or BDD. We are able to offer teaching on both disorders as part of a combined event, but in order to do this we would need to reduce the scope of the teaching or extend the event across two days.


Please contact the clinic to discuss our availability and rates.
