Copy of Squidward... OCD?
Transcript of Copy of Squidward... OCD?
Paroxetine (Paxil, Pexeva), and Sertraline (Zoloft). This treatment option may not actually treat the patient, rather it simply suppreses obsessive behaviors. Patients may have to be on these drugs forever to maintain control of the OCD. Cognitive Behavior Therapy CBT is a form of therapy that focuses on how we think and feel in what we do. CBT is a general classification for a variety of therapies all with the same basic characteristics, ex. rational emotive therapy. CBT is based on the idea that our thoughts cause your actions, not external things like people and different situations. In order for CBT to be effective, the client must put in as much effort as the therapist. While a good relationship must be developed between the patient and the therapist, it is not the main focus of this therapy. CBT takes place in a Socratic setting so that the therapist can thoroughly understand the patient's concerns and problems. CBT is very similar in some ways to humanistic therapies. Explanation of Therapy Choices We chose to use antidepressants on Squidward to treat his OCD because it is the most sure way his symptoms will be controlled. Pharmacotherapy is the strongest treatment option for patients with OCD (biological). By using antidepressants, the cause of his OCD would be attacked directly. We chose CBT as Squidward's other option because he will have to show a certain level of commitment to treat himself. CBT does not work if the patient does not want to be treated. If Squidward can show that he wants to be treated, he is less likely to relapse.
