Este taller comienza con una revisión de las respuestas de la familia al TOC y el impacto de estas respuestas.  En un esfuerzo por hacer frente a situaciones difíciles, las respuestas de la familia al TOC pueden empeorar los síntomas y hacer sentirse frustrados a todos.  Vamos a introducir el concepto de contrato conductual, una intervención basada en la familia, para unir a las familias en un proceso terapéutico de trabajar juntos para reducer los síntomas del TOC.  Después de la presentación, los participantes califican a su acomodación familial.  Además se dividirán en grupos pequeños con facilitadores profesionales que conducen a los participantes en un ejercicio de contratación.  Este es un taller interactivo y experimental, ideal para familias.  Incluso si su familia/persona con TOC no está presente, se puede participar.

This bilingual workshop begins with a presentation reviewing family responses to OCD and the impact these responses have on OCD. In an effort to cope with challenging situations, family responses to OCD can worsen the symptoms, leaving family members and individuals with OCD feeling frustrated. We introduce the concept of behavioral contracting, a family-based intervention, to unite families in a therapeutic process to work together to reduce OCD symptoms. After the presentation, participants rate their family accommodation, then will divide into small groups with professional facilitators who lead participants in a contracting exercise. This is an interactive and experiential workshop, ideal for families. Even if your family/person with OCD is not present, you can participate.
