The Behavioral Treatment of Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder: Prediction of Outcome at 3.5 Years Follow-Up
A number of studies have demonstrated the effects of behavioral treatment for obsessive-compulsive disorders but longterm follow-up studies are rare (Emmelkamp, 1982). The aim of the present study is to evaluate the effects of behavioral treatment (exposure in vivo and response prevention) approximately 3.5 years after treatment. Further, this study sought to identify patient characteristics associated with outcome at posttreatment and follow-up.
