Disclaimer – This podcast is for exploratory purposes only. The Bergen format is still being studied, and the success rate against weekly therapy is yet to be tested. If you are in therapy with a licensed therapist who understands OCD, and is using Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) you have the best treatment backed by decades of robust science whether you do that 1 hour a week, or in 3-week intensive.
In episode 178 of The OCD Stories podcast I interviewed Dr Chad Brandt. Chad is a licensed clinical psychologist with expertise in treating anxiety based disorders. He works at the Houston OCD program. We talk about his experience of being a therapist on the Bergen format, facing scary things and why you are normal. Hope it helps!
