Working With Frustrated Families

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

This talk is for clinicians working with families who are knowledgeable about OCD. The families have read and have tried numerous forms of treatment, including family therapy, without much relief. Yet, they find themselves hostage to the OCD rules which they often experience as intentional on the sufferer's part. The families often report feeling overrun by the OCD rules and they are frustrated and angry. We will talk about working with these angry, frustrated families.  The focus will include what treatment with an elephant in the room – the elephant being the untreated OCD – should look like, as well as appropriate goals for treatment.
