Storytelling for Grownups: How Exposure to Stories and Metaphors can Enhance Understanding and Treatment of OCD

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

OCD symptoms and treatments are sometimes so strange that illustrative stories can often be the best way to communicate and learn about them. In this workshop, Dr. Weg will read stories to the adult participants and then ask them to share their perceptions of how each story represents certain aspects of the experience of OCD and/or its treatment. We strongly encourage (but do not require) all participants to join the presenter in coming in their pajamas. We are looking to create a warm, cozy and intimate environment that is fun, educational, and compelling, and will serve to help build a shared sense of community. Fuzzy slippers are optional!
