OCD Workshop for Parents & Families: Discussing Issues from Diagnosis to Treatment Refusal

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

OCD has significant effects on families and their functioning. This unique workshop will cover parent and interdisciplinary perspectives related to family challenges arising in the context of OCD. Parents will share their journey to obtain proper OCD diagnosis and treatment for their teen. Dr. Stewart will report on her study exploring obstacles and how they are overcome by parents adapting to their children’s illness. A novel approach to treatment incorporating simultaneous OCD child, teen, and parent groups and a ground- breaking family-based approach for management of OCD treatment refusers will be described by clinical psychologists. The workshop will end with a panel discussion with all speakers.
