Why this day is important:

Obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) is distressing not just for those suffering from OCD but also for family members and friends. Contrary to the popular view of OCD as being harmless over-cleanliness or simply checking things over and over again, OCD sufferers experience a high level of anxiety – and the condition can damage their relationships, social and work lives, and physical health.

Many sufferers are ashamed of their problem and hide it. Sometimes therapists fail to recognise the rarer forms of OCD and therefore fail to offer effective treatment. And many people with milder forms of OCD do not realise that they can be helped, and do not seek help until their condition becomes much more severe.

This workshop offers an in-depth look at OCD in all its guises and focuses on practical and effective methods of treatment – OCD recovery is possible in most cases.

The day is interactive and includes demonstration videos of therapy sessions, short video clips, in-depth discussions and case studies.



This course complements the 1-day course: How to Control Chronic Anxiety - the practical skills you need
