Bizarre Love Triangle: Facilitating Communication Between Psychiatrists, Therapists, and OCD Consumers

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

This panel hopes to foster a better understanding of the roles psychiatrists, therapists, and consumers play in OCD treatment and the expectations each party has of the other. Too often communication breaks down when consumers attempt to navigate a treatment plan that includes CBT/ERP, medication management, and their own needs.

The panel will conclude with a Q&A from the audience.
