Perry D Passaro Ph.D.
I utilize an Integrated Protocol for anxiety disorders, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), mood disorders and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). This protocol was developed when the limits of traditional treatment were reached. Francine Shapiro, the developer of EMDR, opened the door to the integration of EMDR with other methods of psychotherapy and called for the assimilation of evidence based treatments in helping clients heal.
The Integrated Protocol is a holistic approach that utilizes a combination of Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) and DeTUR (Desensitization of Triggers and Urges).
Chemical and behavioral addiction as well as OCD.
Dr. Passaro has taught at the university level and has lectured about CBT to psychiatric residents. Dr. Passaro integrates newer findings from CBT research regarding eastern wisdom teachings and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) into traditional CBT. Dr. Passaro is also certified in EMDR and used each of these methods in an integrated protocol for OCD.
Dr. Perry Passaro is Licensed Educational Psychologist, a Licensed Psychologist and a credentialed school psychologist. Approximately 50% of his clients have OCD.
