1. Becoming familiar with the phenomenology of OCD and how to assess for it in clinical settings.
2. Understanding the basic framework of CBT for OCD, emphasizing exposure therapy work.
3. Seeing examples of how to do exposure with response prevention and cognitive restructuring with youth and adults.
