OCD: From Donald Duck to Darth Vader

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

This is a fun interactive workshop for kids with OCD aimed at improving their ability to identify and address obsessions/compulsions through using Disney characters. Children will learn and discuss idiosyncrasies about the characters that, if heightened, could be considered obsessive-compulsive, and will work together to create treatment plans that would help the characters overcome their fears. It will be an entertaining activity for kids to learn about the various symptoms of OCD, how to pinpoint them, and how to overcome them. Kids will also discuss how the behaviors they identify in the characters relate to their own experiences of OCD.
