What does the app do?
The obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) course in an online course that teaches proven and effective strategies for tackling OCD using cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) techniques.
The course follows the story of 2 New Zealand based fictional characters who experience the symptoms of OCD.
- Throughout the course, the stories will help the user learn about their own symptoms and the steps required to help them recover.
- Each story takes about 20 minutes to read and will generally require the user to take 3–4 hours in between each part to complete the suggested practice activities.
- Users are able to work through the course with the support of a healthcare provider and their progress can be monitored if they so choose.
There are 6 parts to the course, which focus on: understanding a diagnosis of OCD, managing OCD worries and behaviour, OCD exposure steps, maintaining progress and preventing relapse. The course recommends taking a week to complete each part (6 weeks in total), however users are able to go at their own pace and save their progress as they go.
The course provides a good source of accurate information about OCD and could be a useful additional to support the treatment of OCD. It teaches useful techniques to practice in the tools and tips section and also provides the opportunity to connect with other people who are going through similar difficulties with OCD.
