Exposure & Response Prevention (ERP)
Cognitive-behavioral therapy with exposure and response prevention is the gold-standard of OCD treatment. Put simply, ERP is doing what makes us uncomfortable and not doing any neutralizing or comforting behaviors in response. Two major things tend to happen when we practice ERP: 1) anxiety decreases in time, and 2) we begin to learn that we're capable of much more than we thought.
