Abstract 

Introduction: This study was carried out to compare the efficacy of Danger Ideation Reduction Therapy (DIRT) with Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) method in treatment of compulsive washing.
Method: Six females with compulsive washing were selected to take part in a multiple-baseline type single-subject experimental trial, and were divided in 2 groups. Subjects of each group answered to the Maudseley Obsessional-Compulsive Inventory (MOCI), Yale-Brown Obsessive-Compulsive Scale, Depression-Anxiety-Stress Scale (DASS) and Subjective United Discomfort Scale (SUD) at three stages of: baseline, fourth, and final sessions. Data were presented in charts.
Results: This research indicated that both DIRT and ERP (especially DIRT) were effective in alleviating the symptoms of compulsive washing.
Conclusion:
DIRT is more effective than ERP for treatment of compulsive washing.
