Abstract [en]

This study evaluated the effectiveness of a concentrated exposure and response prevention (ERP) treatment for adolescents with obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). Twenty-two adolescents with OCD (range 11–17 years) received therapist-assisted ERP during four consecutive days, followed by a three week period of self-administered ERP. Treatment was delivered to 2–3 patients and their parents simultaneously at an outpatient clinic for child and adolescent psychiatry as part of standard health care. OCD-symptoms were assessed at pre-treatment, post-treatment, 3- and 6-month follow-up. The results demonstrated that patients had significant reduction in OCD-symptoms from pre- to post-treatment and the gains were maintained at follow-up. 91% (n=20) were classified as responders at post-treatment, and 77% (n=17) at six-month follow-up. Remission rates were 73% (n=16) at post-treatment and 68% (n=15) at six-month follow-up. OCD-related impairment and symptoms of anxiety and depression were significantly reduced at post-treatment and follow-up. The results suggest that concentrated ERP is a promising treatment for adolescents with OCD.
