Don't Try Harder, Try Different is your yearly fun talk to attend. OCD robs you of fun, of smiling, and of living the life you want. If you want to learn how to identify and manager stressors so that OCD will not flare up, this talk is for you. If you are a friend or family member of a person with OCD, then this talk will teach you about how they think and about how you can best support them. If you are new to treating OCD, then this talk will give you tips to use with your patients to help them (and you) identify safety seeking behaviors and cognitive distortions that can maintain OCD.
