Within the landscape of OCD there is an often-misunderstood subset known as Homosexual OCD, or HOCD. This presentation will help patients and family members better recognize and understand the nuances of this form of OCD, from diagnosis to recovery and all points in between. We will highlight common obsessions and compulsions in HOCD, as well as assist participants in differentiating between HOCD and actual feelings of homosexuality. By using real case examples we will outline treatment, recovery and maintenance for this insidious incarnation of Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder.
