We are very excited to announce that the OCD & Anxiety Program of Southern California, based in Los Angeles, will be offering the effective and concentrated Bergen 4 Day Treatment (B4DT) beginning in January 2024. This exciting project is in collaboration with Bjarne Hansen, PhD, one of the creators of the B4DT and director of Bergen Center for Brain Plasticity and its co-director Kristen Hagen, PhD. They will train and certify the entire treatment team at the OCD & Anxiety Program of Southern California. Following that, the OCD & Anxiety Program will offer this program to any interested patient with OCD. All groups will be offered in English and people based in the US or in any other country (and able to communicate in English) are welcome to apply. If you are interested in finding out more please contact us through our Contact US button on our main homepage with your name, email address and phone number and write BERGEN in the comments section. We will reach out once we have more information.
Furthermore, with generous support from Kavli Trust, OCD therapists from all over the world will receive training to become certified as B4DT therapists. The Los Angeles program will function as the national and international training center and the intention is to create B4DT teams in all continents of the world. So far, teams from these parts of the world have signed up: Quito, Ecuador; Nairobi, Kenya; Melbourne, Australia. This is in addition to existing teams in Singapore, Sweden, Germany, Finland, and Iceland.
Additionally, early in 2024 workshops will be offered to any interested therapist to attend, both virtually and in-person.
