Our Training Institute

The Center for OCD and Anxiety provides a number of options for professionals wanting to increase their competency in treating clients with Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD) and related issues. We have an ever-growing library of pre-recorded webinars that you can purchase and then access on your own schedule by signing into the Webinar Access Portal. We also offer live virtual trainings that can be attended from anywhere you can access the internet. All trainings are grounded in evidence-based treatment for OCD, including Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). If you’d like to explore additional training options such as individual supervision and on-site training, or you have specific questions about training, you can also complete the training request form at the bottom of this page.

All live and pre-recorded trainings are approved for CEUs through co-sponsorship of the University of Pittsburgh’s School of Social Work, a Council on Social Work Education accredited school and therefore a PA pre-approved provider of social work continuing education. These credit hours satisfy requirements for LSW/LCSW, LMFT, and LPC biennial license renewal. For information on general social work continuing education call (412) 346-8044.

Other Training and Consultation Options

Professional Consultation

Mental Health providers have the option to sign up for phone/web-based consultations. Providers can use these consultations to receive support with a single client, or multiple clients, as they see fit. We offer professional consultation as a standalone service, but it can often be helpful to supplement learning from our online ERP Essentials and other modules. Consultations are offered in 30 minute blocks ($50) or 60 minute blocks ($100).

On-Site Training and Consultation

We provide on-site training, with an option for ongoing consultation, to schools and mental health organizations. Professionals in these settings report receiving great value from these trainings, as they are often in the position of working with individuals with OCD and feeling confused about how best to help them. Our trainings empower professionals with the tools to support individuals with OCD, with whom the typical behavioral interventions are often unhelpful.

Professional Supervision

Whether you are seeking supervision as part of your mental health licensure, or are a seasoned provider looking for ongoing support, we offer individual and group supervision for providers.
