Relationship OCD and the Doors of Uncertainty

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

Are you constantly questioning your relationship and/or your loved one's characteristics? Do you want to call it quits, but want to know with a 100% certainty that it's the right thing to do? Do you keep opening doors to find answers but discover more uncertainty? Are you experiencing extreme guilt, anxiety, frustration, and/or regret? This workshop will help attendees to learn how to identify relationship OCD (rOCD) and to recognize their compulsions. We will practice therapy strategies to start accepting feelings brought in by rOCD. Attendees will prepare a short, mild script and participate in an imaginary exposure, if they would like. The goal of this workshop is to give people hope and the knowledge that they can have a meaningful and loving relationship without having to open the doors of uncertainty.
