Diagnosing Disney

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

This is a fun workshop for kids to help them improve their ability to identify and address obsessions and compulsions. Children will use Disney characters to learn about and discuss things that could be considered obsessive-compulsive and work to create treatment plans to help the characters confront their fears.
This interactive game will help kids struggling with OCD learn about common OCD symptoms and how to overcome them. Kids will also discuss how the behaviors they identify in the characters relate to their own experience of OCD.
