The Misidentification of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder; Ethics of Treatment & Diagnosis

This interactive workshop will provide an opportunity to learn about the Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) cycle and symptom dimensions, taboo types of OCD, exposure and response prevention therapy (Ex/RP), the prevalence of misidentification, as well as the ethics behind identifying symptoms and referring out early on in the treatment process if appropriate.

Participants will learn how to begin to reframe anxiety in general and within the context of OCD treatment.
