Exposure and Response Prevention

Exposure and response prevention is a behavioral technique that is used primarily for treatment of Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD). It is based on the premise that fears and distress are extinguished when they are confronted. In treatment, an individual is exposed to the specific stimuli that cause distress and then asked to resist engaging in compulsive rituals. In this manner, the connection between experiencing the obsession and having the urge to do the compulsion is weakened and ultimately eliminated.
