Washing hands, checking locks, and organizing possessions in a particular way can be part of the experience of Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD). Sometimes called the ‘Doubting Disease’, why do people living with OCD behave this way? Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder can be a challenging condition that significantly impacts individuals’ lives. It’s characterized by intrusive, distressing obsessions and repetitive compulsions that may seem irrational but are often difficult to control.
In the “Understanding OCD” workshop, we delve into the complexities of OCD, equipping participants with valuable insights into the condition and its effects on individuals, families, and caregivers. We explore evidence-based treatments, coping mechanisms, and practical techniques to empower those dealing with OCD and their support networks.
By the end of this workshop, participants will be able to:
- Recognize various presentations and subtypes of Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder
- Identify the signs, symptoms, and consequences of Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder
- Explore the underlying causes and common triggers of Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder
- Understand effective treatment modalities for Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder
- Develop Coping Strategies to manage and alleviate OCD-related challenges
Join us for the “Understanding OCD” workshop and enhance your understanding of this complex disorder, supporting individuals on their journey to better mental health and well-being.
