Cognitive restructuring and exposure/response prevention are two of the cornerstone techniques in OCD treatment. Cognitive restructuring focuses on recognizing faulty thinking patterns and replacing them with healthier, more logically sound ones. Exposure/response prevention exposure gradually exposing a patient to triggers that induce OCD symptoms and then teaching them how to manage their symptoms without using rituals or compulsions.
