Abstract [en]

A previous effectiveness study (Riise et al., 2016) demonstrated promising findings from a 4-day concentrated exposure and response prevention (ERP) treatment, the Bergen 4-day treatment (B4DT), for adolescents with obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). The present study investigated whether the results reported in the original study were replicated in a new sample of adolescents. Forty-one referred patients aged 11–18 underwent treatment at an outpatient clinic, as part of public health care. Treatment was delivered to 2–4 patients and their parents simultaneously, during four consecutive days, followed by a three-week period of self-administered ERP. Obsessive-compulsive symptoms were assessed at pre-treatment, post-treatment, 3- and 6-month follow-up. The results demonstrated significant reductions in OCD-symptoms. Remission was achieved by 33 patients (80%) at post-treatment, and 30 (73%) at follow-up. At post-treatment or follow-up there were no significant differences between the present sample and the sample in Riise et al. (2016) on OCD-severity or on rates of response or remission. The results demonstrate that the treatment was successfully replicated in a new sample and adds further support to the efficacy of the B4DT. Findings suggest that a concentrated treatment format with prolonged sessions might be a viable option to improve treatment outcomes of ERP.
