The Scrupulosity Answer Guys

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

Panelists will explore challenges related to the experience and treatment of scrupulosity. First, panelists will give brief presentations on scrupulosity. A therapist-audience dialogue will follow, consisting of a Q&A about symptoms and treatment obstacles, and an open conversation about unique challenges that arise when OCD becomes entangled with religion or morality. Sample issues include: What role does religion have in OCD? How can someone with OCD be religious but not scrupulous? Can one engage in exposures without violating religious law? How can scrupulous individuals interact with clergy in a way consistent with their values and still healthy in terms of OCD? In discussing these questions, the conversation will remain grounded in practical treatment issues and clinical application.
