The Third Annual Social Experiment

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

Back by popular demand, come and participate in a hands-on experiential workshop for individuals with OCD and social anxiety. One of the major difficulties associated with OCD is its effect on social functioning. For example: not enjoying a night out with a group of friends because of being in the bathroom due to repeatedly washing hands. Symptoms may be secondary to OCD or co-occurring as a social anxiety disorder.

The presenters will engage attendees in a series of interactive activities and points of discussion designed to stimulate and expand how ERP is conceptualized with co-occurring OCD and social anxiety. Participation in the interactive “social experiment” that will take place in and around the conference setting and will break participants up into small groups for ERP activities. Learn how to face OCD-related social difficulties more effectively by testing out some new concepts and behaviors with the support of peers.
