Predictors of response to cognitive behaviour therapy for obsessive-compulsive disorder
The Relative Impact of Cognitive and Behavioral Skill Comprehension and Use During CBT for Obsessive Compulsive Disorder
Background During cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) for Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), individuals learn to utilize cognitive and behavioral skills to manage their symptoms. However, it is
Anxiety Sensitivity Accelerates the Temporal Changes in Obsessions and Compulsions During Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
Background Although obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) is effectively treated by cognitive behavior therapy (CBT), less is known about mechanisms underlying treatment response. Anxiety sensitivity
Extended formulation in cognitive behavioural therapy for OCD: a single case experimental design
Abstract The demanding nature of exposure work that forms an essential component of exposure and response prevention (ERP) for obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) is for some patients intolerable and
Relationships between obsessive-compulsive disorder, depression and functioning before and after exposure and response prevention therapy
Following ERP, treatment that focuses on depression and functioning, including medication management for depression, cognitive approaches targeting rumination, and behavioural activation to boost functionality may be important clinical interventions for OCD patients.


Behavioral versus cognitive treatment of obsessive-compulsive disorder: an examination of outcome and mediators of change.
BT may have some therapeutic advantage over CT in the treatment of OCD, and this advantage does not appear to be due to a differential pattern of responding for treatment dropouts versus completers.
Internet-based cognitive behaviour therapy for obsessive–compulsive disorder: a randomized controlled trial
Internet-based ICBT is an efficacious treatment for OCD that could substantially increase access to CBT for OCD patients, and Replication studies are warranted.
Cognitive-behavioral therapy for medication nonresponders with obsessive-compulsive disorder: a wait-list-controlled open trial.
CBT is a useful treatment for OCD patients who have failed to respond adequately to multiple serotonin reuptake inhibitor medications, however, these results were attenuated compared with previous trials.
Potentials and Limitations of Cognitive Treatments for Obsessive‐Compulsive Disorder
For the average OCD patient, cognitive interventions, either alone or combined with ERP, are no more effective than ERP alone, and future research directions are suggested to evaluate more fully the merits of, and indications for, cognitive methods for treating OCD.
Patient utilization of cognitive-behavioral therapy for OCD.
Predictors of Patient Adherence to Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy for Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder
This study examined potential predictors of patient adherence to EX/RP and whether patient adherence mediated the relationship between these predictors and post-treatment OCD severity and examined four factors hypothesized to affect cognitive-behavioral therapy adherence in other patient groups.
Empirically Grounded Clinical Interventions: Cognitive Versus Behaviour Therapy in the Individual Treatment of Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder: Changes in Cognitions and Clinically Significant Outcomes at Post-Treatment and One-Year Follow-Up
Two treatments of ERP and CT for OCD patients were equally effective in modifying dysfunctional beliefs, and the outcomes at the end of the treatments were maintained, or even increased, one year later.
Moderators and predictors of response to cognitive-behavioral therapy augmentation of pharmacotherapy in obsessive–compulsive disorder
This is the first randomized controlled study to examine moderators and predictors of CBT augmentation of SRI pharmacotherapy, and effect sizes for individual predictors tended to be small, their combined effect was comparable to that of treatment.
