ABSTRACT

Neuropsychological deficits often act as hindering factors in the treatment of Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). The present study assessed the effect of cognitive training on cognitive flexibility, non-verbal memory and symptoms of obsessions and compulsions. The study was conducted on 9 individuals, aged between 20-40 years, diagnosed with OCD. They were randomly assigned to two groups, the delayed trial group and experimental group. Baseline measures were taken using scales on OCD and neuropsychological assessments. This was followed by cognitive training of experimental group for 6 sessions. Post-intervention measures were taken from both the groups. Statistical analysis of findings suggested the presence of significant improvement in the post intervention scores of some of the variables, of individuals belonging to experimental group.
