Motivating Toward Recovery
Strategies for Maintaining Motivation Across Treatment and Beyond
ERP is an effective yet demanding treatment, making treatment motivation essential. Unfortunately, misconceptions about motivation can make it difficult for individuals to maintain engagement. In order to help those with OCD enhance treatment motivation, panelists will present a framework for conceptualizing motivation as a skill, examining the common roadblocks and identifying specific strategies for maintaining motivation across treatment and beyond. Presenters will integrate current research/clinical insights with lessons learned from their own experiences going through OCD treatment to provide attendees with practical/tailored motivational skills. Strategies for re-framing attitudes towards anxiety and using the “greater good perspective shift” to enhance motivation will be provided. Overall, this panel will provide an interactive/inspirational venue for those with OCD to enhance treatment motivation.
