Live your best life anyway!: A Town Hall Experience with the OCD & Autism Spectrum Disorder Special Interest Group.

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

In recent years there's been growing awareness of the unique issues associated with OCD and Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). In response, the IOCDF created our OCD/ASD Special Interest Group (SIG), whose members have backgrounds in psychiatry, psychology, and behavior analysis. As a group we aspire to give individuals and families affected by OCD/ASD the attention and support that they deserve. This Town Hall will showcase the strength and courage of those affected by OCD/ASD and their families by sharing inspiring stories from our own practices. We hope audience members will share their own positive (or funny) experiences. What does it mean to live your best life anyway, despite OCD/ASD? Please join us for this important Town Hall and find out!
