How do I know if I am a good person, with good intentions, likely to choose good behaviors? Coping with uncertainty about moral issues can be painful with OCD. Common obsessions include excessive concern with right and wrong, honesty, justice, generosity, and compassion for others. Common compulsions may include excessive reassurance-seeking, confessing, avoidance of morally ambiguous situations, mental rituals and other efforts to get certainty of one's morality. This workshop focuses on identifying effective cognitive and behavioral tools for combatting moral scrupulosity.
