This practical workshop will explain and demonstrate how EMDR can be utilised as part of a therapeutic package in the treatment of adults and children with OCD. The workshop will explain how OCD differs from other psychological disorders and what the treatment implications are for this. Robin will  describe how EMDR can be used for OCD and how it sometimes needs to be adapted and enhanced with other therapeutic approaches such as CBT.

Of particular relevance to OCD, the Flashforwards technique, will be described and explained. Worshop participants will be given detailed guidance in how to utilise this technique effectively.

The workshop will be illustrated throughout with case studies and video materials.
