Ted Witzig, Jr., PhD
Narrative of Services:
I am a Licensed Clinical Psychologist in Illinois and a minister in the Apostolic Christian Church of America. My clinical interests are in CBT for anxiety and mood disorders; most specifically scrupulosity and primarily obsessional forms of OCD. I use a combination of CBT and ACT based treatments in my work with clients. Providing treatment in a way that is both sensitive to my clients’ religious beliefs and clinically effective is very important to me. My roles as psychologist and minister give me a special desire to help the scrupulous. I also provide consultations to clergy about mental health issues.
I have had the privilege of working with people with OCD and their families since 1999. I have published research on obsessional beliefs, religious beliefs and scrupulosity in Fundamental Protestant Christians. I have graduated from the IOCDF’s Behavior Therapy Training Institute (BTTI) and have attended numerous Advanced Behavior Therapy Trainings over the years. For several years I have had the opportunity to facilitate the Scrupulosity Support Group at the IOCDF annual conferences. In addition, I have presented topics and participated on panels discussing the topic of scrupulosity and improving treatment for people with OCD.
