Superheros vs. OCD-Villains: Using ACT to Conquer OCD

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Join us as we transform into OCD Superheroes! Kids will first attend Superhero School, where they will learn how ACT (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy) can give kids special powers to take on their OCD enemies. In Superhero School, kids will identify their own values and make masks that represent their superpowers. Once kids have the strength of values behind them they will test their skills by facing their OCD Supervillians. Different OCD Supervillians will try to weaken the OCD Superheroes, but kids will use their newly developed powers to live their best life while facing anxiety, fear, and doubt. Join us for a fun-filled exposure workshop where kids will have the opportunity to use ACT skills to boost their OCD-fighting skills.
