The OCD Monster and Me: The Creation and Destruction of your OCD Monster

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

One way to think about OCD is by viewing it as a monster. This monster’s sole purpose is to trick you into thinking it is right, and it gains power when you obey its rigid rules. Participants in this workshop will have the opportunity to create and define their OCD Monster, which is the first step to defeating it. The concept of the OCD Monster externalizes the disease, so OCD is not viewed as an internal flaw.
