Abstract

Current versions of cognitive behavior therapy have been shown to be effective for obsessive compulsive and related disorders. Recently there has been an increased shift toward targeting the function of inner experiences (e.g. obsessions, urges to hair pull) over their form or content. A handful of treatments target the function of inner experiences to such a large extent that they might be considered a shift. This paper reviews these treatments and their supporting data in the treatment of obsessive compulsive and related disorders.
