BEHOBI BAUDOU, Walter A.; GARCIA, Fernando  and  FERNANDEZ-ALVAREZ, Héctor. Individual cognitive psychotherapy of OCD. Salud Ment [online]. 2013, vol.36, n.4, pp.347-354. ISSN 0185-3325.

A case study is presented in which cognitive therapy is applied to a case of obsessive-compulsive disorder, with contamination and verification rituals. The treatment emphasizes the importance of intervening on the specific metacognitive biases that patients have on their intrusive thoughts. The center of the intervention is not in the obsessions, but in the biased assessments. The post treatment evaluation showed a moderate improvement, a reduction of the biases, and a notable improvement of the functionality of the patient.

Keywords : OCD; bias; cognitive treatment.
