Telehealth Approaches to Obsessive-Compulsive Related Disorders
Psychology | Social and Behavioral Sciences
Recently, a major new category classification of disorders, the obsessive-compulsive related disorders (OCRDs), has been proposed (Hollander, Braun, & Simeon, 2008). The proposed disorders that would fall in this category are associated with efficacious treatments, but have not been widely disseminated. Recent developments in telehealth have made treatment available to a wider range of clients with putative OCRDs. This paper evaluates the efficacy of these treatments when delivered using telehealth methodologies. While the evidence is preliminary, the early results are encouraging for the delivery of cognitive-behavior therapy for a wide range of OCRDs. Additional research directions are suggested in light of these emerging technologies for treatment delivery.
