Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is a prevalent, persistent, and disabling condition that has been shown to adversely impact the lives of individuals on a social, occupational, and academic level. Despite considerable evidence demonstrating the efficacy of treatment for the disorder, individuals with OCD continue to face significant barriers to seeking out help. With substantial cost to the individual, family, and larger society, OCD is a disorder that demands increasing attention.
The purpose of this project was to develop a program, identify a potential funding source, and write a grant to fund a psychoeducational workshop and group cognitive-behavioral therapy program for adults with OCD. For the purpose of educating, engaging, and treating adults with OCD, a psychoeducational program and group cognitive-behavioral therapy program utilizing exposure and response prevention was developed. Outreach methods were also developed in this proposal to help promote community awareness about the disorder. The Wellness Center, a mental health agency located in Long Beach California, was chosen to help support and implement the proposed program. The actual funding and submission of this grant were not requirements for the successful completion of this academic project.
