Abstract

Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) is the forerunner of evidence-based practice and the treatment of choice for obsessive-compulsive disorder, through the identification of specific cognitive processes associated with the condition. Effectively identifying and targeting these processes is correlated with good outcome. Formulation is a platform for clinicians and patients to identifying the idiosyncratic cognitive processes. Training clinicians in formulation is therefore an essential part of delivering effective, evidence-based treatment. This paper will discuss the importance of formulation in cognitivebehaviour therapy for obsessive-compulsive disorder and will argue that appropriate training is required in order to improve the outcome of CBT for OCD as well as to decrease relapse.
