Dr. Sapana Patel and Dr. Andrew Schmidt will talk about a recent innovation in the delivery of psychotherapy – internet-based cognitive behavioral therapy, or ICBT. They will describe mental health conditions for which ICBT has been developed and used successfully in the past, tell us about how ICBT works paying particular attention to an ICBT program for obsessive compulsive disorder. They will also describe an ongoing research trial where interested people suffering with OCD can try ICBT through the NYSPI and Columbia pilot program.
