Abstract

Evidence-supported therapy for obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is often difficult to access, especially in rural and remote areas. Videoconferencing is gaining momentum as a means of improving access. Metacognitive therapy (MCT) has already been found to be effective for OCD when delivered face-to-face. This preliminary study explored whether videoconference-based MCT can be effective for OCD. Three participants completed a brief course of MCT using videoconferencing. Participants experienced clinically significant reductions in OCD symptoms, depression, anxiety, and stress, some of which were maintained after a 6- to 8-week follow-up period. Results suggest that videoconferencing MCT can be effective for OCD. Implications for clinicians are discussed.
