Relapse: Making Sure it Doesn't Happen to You. A Panel Discussion for Young Adults

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

Although relapse is a major concern in the OCD community, it is not inevitable. The audience will gain valuable information on how to prevent relapse and keep their OCD under control. Young adult panelists will share relapse- prevention techniques, as well as what to expect after treatment ends. We will touch upon the importance of using the tools learned in treatment to prevent relapse. Attendees will break into small groups to discuss relapse, actions they can take when faced with OCD challenges, and a transition plan of their goals as they shift their focus from OCD to the future.
