Obsessive Compulsive Disorder
By Meg Gooding
An introduction to OCDOCD is an anxiety disorder that
1-3% of the general population suffer from.
There is an equal distribution of males and females that suffer from OCD.
Psychoanalytic ApproachSigmund Freud attributed OCD to
a child’s deep frustration or negative experience with potty training.
Psychoanalytic ApproachIt is said that obsessions arise
when the individual is trying to counteract impulses with defense mechanisms:
Isolation Undoing Reaction formation
Trait ApproachTherapists are able
to understand a client’s consistent behavior (or trait) in specific situations, and properly be able to address these consistent situations with a client.
Trait ApproachIn the matter of OCD, if a therapist
is able to evaluate which traits are susceptible in triggering compulsive behavior in a client, relapse prevention methods would be easier to outline.
Biological ApproachThere is a consistent
correlation between parents/relatives that have been diagnosed with OCD, and their children/family members being diagnosed with OCD. The most common being between mother & daughter. (Taberner, 2009)
Humanistic ApproachMuch of what
therapists use in the treatment of OCD is Exposure Response Prevention, and helps the client to gain the ability to over come the anxiety when faced with the compulsion to their obsession.
Humanistic ApproachGradually over time the
individual gains more self-esteem about confronting these situations, reducing their state of anxiety.
Behavioral & Social Learning Approach
Observational learning or ‘learned behavior’ can influence the individual to develop feelings or behaviors toward situations or events.
An individual with OCD processes information that becomes distorted
beliefs of these individuals leads them to avoid situations and places.
