Title: EMDR Treatment of OCD Spectrum Disorders

Presenter: Priscilla Marquis, PhD

Brief Summary:

The treatment of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) with Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) will be presented using the Adaptive Information Processing (AIP) Model.  The presentation will discuss the neurobiological underpinnings of OCD.  The basic EMDR Anxiety Protocol and how to apply it for use with OCD will be presented.  In addition, the adaptation of basic Anxiety Protocol for OCD will be delineated in the context of the AIP model.  Case examples of pure obsessional OCD and complex cases of OCD compulsions will be presented.  Response prevention exercises will be explained.  Research regarding OCD and EMDR will be presented.



Bio of  PRESENTER-Priscilla Marquis, PhD

Dr. Priscilla Marquis is one of the pioneers of EMDR Therapy. In 1996, when EMDR was still considered an experimental procedure, Dr. Marquis joined with Drs. Steve Marcus and Carolyn Sakai to conduct a landmark research study at Kaiser San Fransicso which established the superiority of EMDR over Kaiser's traditoinal treatment approaches for treating PTSD. (Marcus, S., Marquis, P. and Sakai, C. (1997). Controlled study of treatment of PTSD   using EMDR in an HMO setting. Psychotherapy, 34, 307-315.) This study established that for the treatment of that one diagnosis alone, Kaiser could save approximately 1.6 million dollars per year by switching to EMDR as it's standard approach to treating PTSD. Dr. Marquis, a fluent speaker of Spanish, has conducted EMDR trainings all over the world, and especially may in South and Central America. She is currently a trainer for HAP, Humanitarian Assistance Program. She has developed her approach to working with OCD Spectrum Disorders over many years working with C. Sprowls and has published it in Scripted Protocols for EMDR Treatment of Anxiety, edited by Marilyn Luber, 2015. She has a private practice in San Francisco, CA and is the Assessment Coordinator at Palo Alto University.
