Inference Based CBT (I-CBT)

A New Model for Treatment Resistant OCD

A focused training that explores how ICBT is different from other evidence-based treatments, the key components to ICBT treatment, how to help your client practice this treatment approach, and important resources to get more training.

Inference-based cognitive behavioral therapy (ICBT) is an evidence-based approach to treating OCD and provides an alternative to exposure therapy, acceptance, and commitment therapy, or mindfulness for OCD.

ICBT believes that “intrusive thoughts” are actually doubts that arise due to prior reasons and vulnerabilities. ICBT reasons that a person with OCD becomes inferentially confused when they believe their doubts are probably true due to the reasons, they believe support the doubt. ICBT is a process-based treatment, taking the client on a journey to “see” how their OCD develops, why it feels so real, and how to stay connected to the here and now using their 5 senses and trusting their real self. You will learn how to help your client practice this treatment approach, and important resources to get more training.

This training explores how ICBT is different from other evidence-based treatments.
