DEALING
WITH OCD?

Take part in a study and receive 2-3 months
of free online therapy for OCD.​

Are you struggling with OCD?

...if so, this study might be a good fit for you.

Our research group at the University of Miami is launching a new study to better understand Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP), which is part of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) for OCD. We are looking for participants between the ages of 18 – 90 who live in the United States, are fluent in English, and who have OCD but are not currently receiving any psychotherapy (medication is OK).

We will be launching this study in August 2024.
If you fill out the study contact form or contact us, we can add you to the study waitlist.

What does participating in this study involve?

Self-paced, Internet-based CBT for OCD

Secure messaging with your assigned therapist

Logging exposures through our exposure coach, OLIE

If you are eligible for this study, you will receive 2-3 months of free, online, and effective CBT-based therapy for OCD. The online therapy is called OCD-NET (https://www.ocd-net.com/). You will be assigned an individual therapist who supports you and who you can message in the OCD-NET platform.

Before you start OCD-NET, you will do an interview session where we ask you about your mental health symptoms. This will be done on Zoom. You will then have a short, one-hour Zoom meeting to meet your assigned therapist and learn how to use OCD-NET.

During OCD-NET, you will do exposure and response prevention exercises. As part of this study you will complete daily entries in an online survey we designed to help coach you through your exposures. This tool is called OLIE, the OCD Logbook for Intentional Exposure.

                                                             

You will also complete weekly questionnaires through the OCD-NET platform. Finally, at the end of the study, you will complete a short interview session with a member of our team via Zoom. You will be compensated for completing the questionnaires, doing the final interview, and using the online survey during exposures.
