Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

OCD can limit an individual's access to the wide array of social interactions typically encountered throughout life. Social skills deficits may subsequently hinder social functioning and one's adaptive ability. When the person with OCD gains control of their OCD and improves their functioning more broadly, social skills deficits can reduce social connections, motivation, and sabotage continued recovery. In this workshop, we will discuss, learn, and practice interpersonal effectiveness skills across work, educational, and relationship settings and address topics like self-disclosure & stigma.
