This chapter presents a case study of the treatment of sexual orientation obsessions in obsessive-compulsive disorder (also called SO-OCD or H-OCD for homosexual OCD). The case study includes information about the client background and case conceptualization of a male with upsetting sexual thoughts who was effectively treated using exposure and response prevention by the authors. Included are measures administered, Real-life examples of his exposure hierarchy, and sample imaginal exposures from the case that serve as realistic examples of what treatment may include. Additionally, this chapter includes additional detailed sample ideas of in vivo and imaginal exposures that can be used as part of treatment for SO-OCD for other clients.
