Support Group for Families of Adults with OCD and Related Disorders

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

OCD in a loved one can be confusing and difficult for parents, siblings, partners, and friends. Oftentimes, loved ones of those suffering with OCD and related conditions feel alone and confused about how they can best understand, support, and help the sufferer. This support group will provide a forum for connection, support, and understanding of the condition through education and sharing. The group will provide insight into the obsessive-compulsive cycle, common distorted thinking patterns in OCD, and compulsive behaviors exhibited by the sufferer. It will also provide suggestions for how to be supportive without enabling or worsening the condition. Attendees will be encouraged to participate in role play situations that will help them to better understand how to appropriately respond to OCD in their loved ones. Participants will also learn the importance of self-care and how to continue to maintain patience and compassion for their loved ones.
