OCFighter™ is an online program for the treatment of Obsessive Compulsive disorder (OCD). It uses the evidence based approach known as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, or CBT for short. The program teaches the best practice CBT technique to help with OCD called Exposure with Ritual Prevention. (ERP). You can print out worksheets for activities, monitor your own progress, receive emails with further tips at the end of each step.
OCFighter™ is made up of 9 steps. The program consists of real life cases of people who have suffered from OCD and gives access to downloadable resources you can keep.
OCFighter™ is derived from research by Professor Baer, Greist, and Marks. Their reseach showed how computerised therapy was effective in reducing the amount of time spent on obsessions and rituals as much as clinician led therapy. This research involved RCT’s in the US and the UK.
Has OCFighter™ been clinically proven to be effective for the treatment of OCD?
In 2005, the National Institute of Clinical Excellence recognised the “absolute clinical efficacy” of OCFighter™. The research OCFighter™ is based upon shows that users can achieve a reduction in the time spent on obsessions and rituals as much as those treated by a real therapist. It has also been shown to be more effective than relaxation.
