Abstract

The treatment of obsessive-compulsive disorders with a behavioural therapeutic program consisting of response prevention has proved to be rather successful. A prospective study of the potentialities of predicting the outcome of such a treatment program is described. The results of this research could possibly lead to the development of a decision model for use in the treatment of obsessive-compulsive neurosis.
