Want to Beat OCD? Learn Tools and Start Fighting Back!

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

Fighting back against OCD and winning the battle is not easy; however, exposure with response prevention (ERP) is an effective treatment option for children. In this experiential workshop, children will receive an overview of OCD and, in a child-friendly manner, they will be introduced to ERP and learn how to fight back against OCD. Children will be introduced to the metaphor of a toolbox that they fill with a number of different ERP tools, including naming OCD, fear thermometers, and fear ladders. Children will learn how to apply each tool when fighting back against OCD. Children will have an opportunity to create their own fear ladders (hierarchy of triggers) and use these new tools to take the first steps at applying ERP to fight OCD.
