OCFighter™ s an interactive, internet guided self-help (GSH) treatment program for obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). It uses the evidence based approach known as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and was adapted from the previously validated BT STEPS program for OCD. The program teaches the best practice CBT technique to help with OCD called exposure with ritual prevention (ERP).
- Change in Yale-Brown Obsessive-Compulsive Scale (Y-BOCS) [ Time Frame: Baseline (pretreatment), 17-weeks (posttreatment), and 6 month-follow-up ]The Y-BOCS is a semi-structured interview that assesses severity of obsessions and compulsions. The total score is reported here and ranges from 0 to 40 with higher scores indicating more severe OCD symptoms.
- Responder Status [ Time Frame: Week 17 (post-treatment) and 6-month follow-up ]Participants who experienced a clinically significant change in Y-BOCS score defined as posttreatment YBOCS score that (a) has decreased by a reliable level (at least 1.96 times the standard deviation of that measure, taking into account the reliability of the measure itself; in this case, a decrease of 5 points or more), and (b) is within the nonclinical range of scores (in this case, a score of 13 or below).
