I Must be the Worst: The Scary World of OCD and Parenting

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

Being a parent is scary in its own right, but can be even scarier if you have OCD. For some OCD
sufferers, this presents in the form of horrifying intrusive thoughts of sexual behavior, violence, neglect,
and incompetence toward their children. This panel will discuss mindfulness and cognitive behavioral approaches to treating these manifestations of OCD. Topics will include obsessive thoughts of pedophilia, infanticide, moral scrupulosity, and contamination fears unique to parenting; safe and ethical ERP strategies; as well as a discussion on how to keep OCD from impairing healthy parenting.
