Obsessive doubts about sexual identity have increasingly come out of the closet, and are now better recognized as common symptoms of OCD. Despite this, sufferers still frequently lack accurate information about the symptoms and treatments. This presentation will outline typical symptoms of this problem, as well as present and explain a range of cognitive and behavioral techniques that can be used to effectively treat them. In addition, a presentation will be made by an individual who has made a successful recovery, outlining the experience of his disorder, before, during, and after treatment.
