Intensive Outpatient Program for OCD and Anxiety Disorders - Butler Hospital
Faculty Supervisor(s): Maria Mancebo, PhD, Matt Evans, PhD, Rachel Simmons, PhD & Jose Rengifo, MD
The OCD and Anxiety Disorders Intensive Outpatient Program is a specialized program designed to help adults experiencing persistent obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), intense fears (phobias), panic disorder, health anxiety, and social anxiety. Grounded in an exposure-based CBT model of treatment, the program is geared towards patients who have not responded to traditional outpatient treatment. Treatment takes place Monday through Thursday (2pm – 5pm), over an average 6 week period. Patients in this program receive individual therapy, daily group therapy, as well as home-based ERP, family consultations, and expert psychiatric medication consultation. Clinical psychology residents will participate and receive supervision in all aspects of program procedures.  This placement also includes program-relevant hospital consultations and one-half day each week on call in the Patient Assessment Services (PAS) at Butler Hospital, where the clinical psychology resident works with a psychiatrist to triage patients for hospital services. Treatment services are delivered in-person as well as via videoconferencing.
