Therapists with OCD Group

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

Being a therapist with OCD comes with a unique set of opportunities and challenges.  On the plus side, we have the personal experience that enables us to truly empathize with our clients who are struggling with mental disorders.  However, we also have some special challenges.  How do we handle it when our OCD is triggered by something said or done in session? How do we manage the OCD tendency to feel that we have to be “perfect” because we are therapists? How do we help clients with some of the very same issues with which we might struggle, such as shame and self-criticism?  Join us for this new support group, where therapists with OCD will meet to interactively discuss all these issues and more.  In addition, we’ll discuss how to form your own ongoing therapist phone support group with the other therapists you’ll meet tonight.
