This study, run by the University of Technology Sydney’s Graduate School of Health, Discipline of Clinical Psychology, will help evaluate an online OCD Course and improve it for others.
The OCD Course is a free online treatment course designed to provide information for people living with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) and to teach practical, proven skills for reducing symptoms and managing OCD.
It was developed because OCD has a significant impact on people’s lives, but the symptoms often make it very difficult to seek treatment. People with OCD often also find it difficult to access effective, evidence-based treatment. Online treatment is one approach to overcoming some of the barriers people experience and provides access to effective treatment.
The course is suitable for people:
- Aged 18+
- With symptoms of OCD, i.e. symptoms of obsessions and compulsions
- Who want to learn information and skills to improve the quality of their lives and emotional wellbeing
- Who have at least 4 hours per week to spend working on the course and practising skills taught
The course is not suitable for people:
- Who are currently suicidal
- Who do not have access to the internet
- Who cannot read and understand English (as the course is not currently available in other languages)
A new OCD Course group begins on the first Monday of every month.
