⭐ 25 June 2024 – Obsessive Compulsive Disorder – understanding OCD and how best to treat it

CPD Event title: Obsessive Compulsive Disorder – understanding OCD and how best to treat it

Brief Description Of Event: Obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) is not only distressing for sufferers but for their family members and friends too. Contrary to the popular view of OCD being harmless over-cleanliness or simply checking things over and over again, people living with OCD experience a high level of anxiety – and the condition can damage their relationships, social and work lives, and physical health.

Many sufferers are ashamed of their problem and hide it. Sometimes therapists fail to recognise the rarer forms of OCD and therefore fail to offer effective treatment. And many people with milder forms of OCD do not realise that they can be helped, and do not seek help until their condition becomes much more severe.

Learning Objectives: This accredited live online course offers an in-depth look at OCD in all its guises and focuses on practical and effective methods of treatment – OCD recovery is possible in most cases.

The day is interactive and includes demonstration videos of therapy sessions, short video clips, in-depth discussions and case studies.
