In 1994 upon completing her training with Dr. Edna Foa, Dr. Eda Gorbis began using Dr. Foa’s intensive method involving prolonged and repeated exposures and response prevention (ERP) for treating OCD. The Westwood Institute for Anxiety Disorders was founded in 1997 by Dr. Gorbis in response to the lack of expertise and successful treatment of obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD). Since the 1990s, Dr. Gorbis has successfully treated numerous patients from many parts of the world suffering from severe OCD and has trained many clinicians from the United States and across the world on her intensive integrated method. This program is a highly personalized intensive program for those with anxiety-related disorders. While it is very time consuming and difficult, it is also exhibits a very high level of success with people who have
failed on average 2-3 programs prior to attending ours.
