Do you have obsessive-compulsive disorder or think you might? Have you had trouble finding treatment for your OCD? Do you use the Internet? If you answered “yes” to these questions, you might be eligible to participate in a research study conducted by Dr. Kenneth Kobak of the Center for Psychological Consultation. This study will evaluate a new, web-based treatment program for obsessive-compulsive disorder called BT Steps. BT Steps teaches participants skills from cognitive behavior therapy and is based on an earlier, telephone-based program that was shown to be effective in a research trial. In the current research study, we will assess the effectiveness of BT Steps alone, or supported by coaching from either a trained coach or a cognitive behavior therapist. This study is supported by a grant from the National Institute of Mental Health.
To participate in this study, you must be at least 18 years old, have OCD, and use or be willing to use the Internet. Participants will be compensated up to $150 for their participation.
If you have any questions or would like to learn more about this study please contact Revere Greist at (608) 556-0766 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Researchers at NYSPI/Columbia University, Yale University, and the University of Southern California are conducting an online survey to learn more about how a family member responds to a relative’s symptoms of obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD). Participation is anonymous and typically takes about 30 minutes. The information gathered may contribute to a better understanding of the ways in which loved ones may best assist a person with OCD and may lead to improved services and delivery of care. Participation is limited to once per person.

See the call for study participation to participate in an online study exampining a new promising self-help technique targeting obsessions, which is called "doubt
therapy" developed by Dr. Kieron O' Connor and his colleagues at
McGill University Montreal (Canada). The concept is derived from
empirical research and compatible with cognitive-behavioral therapy,
the current treatment-of-choice for OCD. Study participation is free
of charge and anonymous.
