This two-day Cognitive Behavioral Treatment Group, led by Dr. Reid Wilson, is a treatment opportunity for individuals with OCD who might not otherwise have access to an intensive OCD treatment program. Components of this program include: how to alter rigidly held belief systems, how to let go of obsessions, how to gain mastery over compulsions, and how to increase courage and determination.

This treatment opportunity will be held in conjunction with the 2017 Annual OCD Conference at the San Francisco Marriott Marquis. Two sessions of the treatment group will be held, one before and one at the end of the Conference.

  • Session I will be held on Wednesday, July 5 – Thursday, July 6, 2017.
  • Session II will be held on Sunday, July 9 – Monday, July 10, 2017.
  • Assessing your problem & targeting your symptoms
  • Components of cognitive-behavioral treatment: exposure, imagery practice, ritual prevention, habituation
  • How do you alter belief systems that are so rigidly held and reinforced?
  • How do you ratchet up your courage and determination?
  • The most effective ways to help you let go of your obsessions
  • Characteristics of rituals which can be altered
  • The best strategies to gain control over your compulsions
  • How to follow a series of graduated steps toward ending your obsessions and compulsions.

The focus of this day is to — individually and as a group — create your personal program of recovery and to practice the key skills of recovery. This will be done in a safe environment and at each person’s own pace.

  • How to win the anxiety game
  • Designing your personal cognitive-behavioral plan
  • Practicing here as a group
  • Creating progressive at-home assignments
  • Setting realistic tasks for yourself
  • Guidelines for skill practice
