It's Everywhere! Eating, Breathing, and Living in Contamination

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

Contamination is a common theme in the world of OCD and can encompass a number of different categories. In environmental contamination, for example, individuals fear power lines, radiation, WiFi, microwaves, and other energy based sources they fear can cause a life threatening illness. Others fear household and other chemicals such as cleaning products, gasoline, oils, even soap based supplies. These profiles appear differently than individuals who fear contamination from eating certain foods, or from dirt and germs.  This presentation will discuss these varying contamination categories in detail, how they differ, treatment plans, and case examples. Time will be allotted for audience Q&A.
