Are You Sure Everything's Going to Be OK? Managing Reassurance-Seeking in the Family Environment

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

It is natural to want to help a loved-one feel better by answering reassurance-seeking questions, but providing reassurance makes OCD worse. This workshop will provide information about reassurance-seeking behavior, explain how to distinguish between true information-seeking and reassurance-seeking, and demonstrate how to respond to reassurance-seeking questions in an effective way. Presenters will roleplay a reassurance-seeking situation, and then ask for audience examples. Our goal is to facilitate a fun, interactive workshop after which family members can immediately apply principles learned to help their loved one tolerate uncertainty and fight back against OCD.
