Do I Laugh With the Sinners or Cry With the Saints? A Discussion About Scrupulosity

This presentation is a therapist-audience dialogue about scrupulosity, structured as a Q&A about treatment obstacles, and an open conversation about unique challenges when OCD is entangled with religion or morality. Sample issues include: What role does religion have vis a vis OCD? How can someone with OCD be religious but not scrupulous? Can one engage in exposures without violating religious law? How can scrupulous individuals interact with clergy in a way consistent with their values and still healthy in terms of OCD? And what about secular, moral scrupulosity?
