The Social Experiment: Let's Be Socially Anxious Together

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

It can almost seem as if OCD doesn't want you to have a social life. Extreme self-consciousness, anxiety, perfectionism, fear of rejection - and OCD symptoms like germ phobia - can make dealing with the everyday social interactions that other people take for granted feel like torture. Join Dr. Spielman on a guided “social experiment” adventure, in which participants will have the opportunity to learn more constructive strategies to deal with OCD-related social obstacles that are naturally (and perhaps not-so-naturally) occurring in and around the hotel conference setting. With support of fellow attendees, and your embarrassing guides, you'll have a good time making social mistakes together. Remember: no social risk, no social reward!
