"ERP in a Box" was exhibited at the OCD Conference in March 2018. Hundreds of people, including therapists and individuals with OCD, looked inside a box and exclaimed, "Genius! Brilliant!" The doctors at the BrainsWay exhibit (the new FDA approved treatment for OCD) stated, "I want one of each! ASAP!" Since purchasing the folks at BrainsWay have stated: "This is a great tool for developing provocations for many different obsessions/compulsions."
Clients who were stuck suddenly got busy. I think the box provided structure and hope. As a therapist I get stuck myself. I can't seem to always motivate my clients to do exposure exercises. ERP in a Box opened up new possibilities. Each time we meet we review the contents of the box and celebrate completed cards.
This box gave me hope. It felt good to do something about my OCD. As soon as I look in my box I can replace feelings of helplessness with activity. I feel like I have more power.
Honestly, I haven't worked on every card yet. There's still some things I need to do. But, the exposure cards that I did work on don't even bother me anymore. I see the box and it reminds me I've still got work to do.
I use the box contents for talking points with my clients who don't like to share much about what's on their mind and what they're doing about it. We look at a few cards, talk about them and come up with a plan. The cards have filled up a lot of silence.
All I've ever wanted to know is how to help my son. The box gives us something to do. We look through the cards together and pick an activity that he feels he can do. I finally feel like I can help him.
This unique deck of cards combines the best practices of Exposure & Response Prevention (ERP) and Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT). Each card invites thoughtful reflection, self-awareness and/or offers an idea for an exposure exercise to be used in everyday life. In addition to 40+ potentially life-changing cards, ERP in a Box includes materials to be used for exposure exercises. These props are designed to make exposure exercises readily accessible so the work can begin immediately.
