OCD wears many hats!  It is a highly complex disorder with many different types of obsessions and compulsions. Most clinicians, families, and the general public know the more common content areas of OCD, such as contamination and arranging obsessions. Yet, some symptoms are puzzling and knowing when they do or do not fall under the OCD umbrella can be quite challenging. This presentation will provide examples of symptoms of OCD that may easily be confused with other diagnoses. We will help distinguish the OCD patterns from other difficulties, including behavioral concerns, eating restrictions, suicidal thoughts, aggressive tendencies, body focused repetitive behaviors, tics, and interests or preferences.
