You can live JOYfully with OCD? Absolutely, if you have the right tools! In this workshop you'll learn the meaning of the acronym JOY: Jump into Discomfort (engage with anxiety playfully), O: Opt for the Greater Good (make values-oriented choices), and Y: Yield to Uncertainty (develop openness to a not-knowing stance). We'll discuss why mindfulness and self-compassion form the foundation of ERP games and share a few interactive exercises for each. Finally, you'll learn fun (yes, fun!) ERP games that you can use at any stage of recovery, several of which we will play during the workshop.
