Biological explanations and treatments for ocd

Biological Explanations and Treatments for OCD

  • BATs

  • Outline (D/E) and evaluate (C+)the Biological Approach to OCD

  • Outline biological therapies for OCD (D)

  • Evaluate the appropriateness and effectiveness of Biological therapies for OCD

  • (B+)


What causes ocd

What causes OCD?

  • Researchers are split over the cause of OCD

  • One one hand it is thought to be a Psychological disorder

  • On the other hand some think it may be the result of abnormalities in the brain


What causes ocd1

What causes OCD?

  • At AS ,in the stress and Abnormality topics, you learned that anxiety and fear are natural and adaptive responses (i.e the behaviour had an advantage for survival)

  • This suggests anxiety and fear have a Biological basis

  • We might then expect that abnormal fears and anxieties are biologically based

Biological explanations for ocd

Biological Explanations for OCD

  • In pairs research and make notes or do a presentation about either genetic factors or the Evolutionary approach to OCD

  • You will then teach the other group

  • Finish off by doing a summary sheet

p206-207 and OCD workbook


Plenary

Plenary

  • Complete the ‘Target and Challenge’ worksheet


Biological therapies

Biological Therapies

  • The main biological therapies for OCD are chemotherapy (drugs) and psychosurgery

  • They are usually used in conjunction with Psychological therapies because they reduce anxiety levels to enable the patient to engage in Psychotherapy

  • The American Psychiatric Association in 2007 recommended that drugs should only be used in severe cases or in conjunction with psychotherapy


Biological therpaies

Biological Therpaies

  • Psychosurgery is a controversial therapy for OCD - see the case study of Mary Lou Zimmerman on p 211

  • A fairly recent treatment is less invasive - Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation

  • In pairs find out about either Chemotherapy or Psychosurgery

Evaluating biological therapies

Evaluating Biological therapies

  • For each therapy evaluate its..

  • appropriateness

  • effectiveness

  • What synoptic points are related to this type of therapy?


Plenary1

Plenary

  • Create a leaflet to inform OCD patients of possible Biological therapies.

  • or do the Biological Breakdown worksheet to help you write an essay about Biological explanations for OCD - see p 207 for a question.
