Support Group for Mental Health Professionals and Trainees with OCD

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

Being a mental health professional with OCD comes with a unique set of opportunities and challenges. We have the personal experience that enables us to truly empathize with our clients who are struggling with mental disorders; however, we also have some special challenges. How do we handle it when our OCD is triggered by something in session? How and/or when do we use self-disclosure with clients who have OCD? How do we help clients with some of the very same issues with which we might struggle, such as shame and self-criticism? Join us for the third annual meeting of this support group, where therapists mental health professionals with OCD will meet to interactively discuss all these issues and more.
