Depressive disorder has been known to co-exist with OCD since a very long time. Studies reported that presence of mood state (disorder) in patients having primary OCD could pose challenges in management. Literature favours use of cognitive behaviour therapy in managing symptoms severity in OCD. Present study attempts to look its role on co-morbid depressive disorder as well as on primary obsessive compulsive symptoms. Pre and post intervention with a control group design were made to conduct this study involving 20 OCD patients, which were equally divided in two groups. One group was given cognitive intervention sessions for 10 weeks. Pre and post intervention assessment was done using YBOCS and BDI and results were compared. Obtained data indicates that there is noticeable decrease in composite YBOCS and BDI scores at post intervention stage, in the group which has been given cognitive intervention as compared to the control group. Finding reveals that cognitive intervention has a role in improving the co-morbid depressive features along with remission of primary obsessive compulsive symptoms in OCD patients.
