When Picky Eating Meets OCD

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

Picky eating or restricted palate can range from mildly frustrating to a serious problem calling for hospitalization. The fears and behaviors in picky eating have a strong correlation to OCD. In this experiential workshop, we will examine the various dimensions of this problem to include fears of choking, gagging, or vomiting; fears when food doesn’t look or smell “right”; or foods that could be spoiled or poisonous. Sensory issues regarding texture or taste will be included. The impact on health, family, and social settings will be described. Interventions to overcome picky eating through ERP will be presented, complete with case presentations and take home applications.
