Families Unite: Learn Skills to Join Together to Fight OCD

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

This workshop will begin with a brief presentation reviewing family responses to OCD in adults and children and the impact these responses have on OCD. We will introduce the concept of behavioral contracting, a family-based intervention, to unite families to work together to reduce OCD symptoms and their impact on the quality of life for everyone. This is a highly interactive and experiential workshop, ideal for families. Even if your family/person with OCD is not present, you can still participate to learn what you can do! Everyone will go away with a plan.
