Regaining Your Balance When Slipping, Sliding and Backsliding: How to Create an OCD Maintenance/Recovery Plan

After the challenging work of ERP, you want to be done. But, you will slip – slipping is a normal process, and it happens for any behavior one tries to change (e.g., diets, exercise programs, smoking cessation, etc.). If slipping meant OCD returned in full force and propelled you back to dysfunction, that would be devastating. But, this isn't the case. The trick is early detection of warning signs and quick response to slips. In this interactive workshop attendees, will identify the triggers leading to slips.  Roleplays will help them learn to recognize the OCDemon, who tries to trick you into turning small lapses into full scale relapse. Attendees will be interactively guided through the process of developing their own relapse prevention/recovery plan.
