Defusing the OCD Bomb: Simple (and Sometimes Silly) Tricks from ACT

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

Have you ever tried saying your most intrusive OCD thoughts in the voice of Donald Duck? Have you ever taken your mind for a walk? Wondering where this is going? Then this interactive workshop is for you. We will introduce teen attendees to the ACT concepts of cognitive fusion and defusion as they relate to OCD. Participants will examine how fusion operates in their own lives and gets in the way of living according to their values. We will have fun experimenting with various defusion techniques and participants will walk away with a new set of tools to help them challenge their OCD.
