By offering additional social support and motivation, group therapy can be an effective and cost-effective form of treatment for some people.
Break Free from OCD
Our Break Free from OCD program is part of an ongoing research project being conducted in conjunction with Curtin University* to improve treatments for the disorder. Treatment involves gradual exposure – where clients are asked to deliberately confront anxiety-provoking thoughts, objects, or situations. Followed by response prevention, which allows clients to stop performing them in a safe and controlled environment.
