GOAL Support Group

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

The GOAL group presented here was started in the spring of 1981, and is the oldest and longest running OCD support group in the country. The group will begin with a brief presentation describing the structure of the group and how each part of the meeting fulfills the needs of its members. This will be followed by attendees participating in the planning phase of a GOAL meeting. In doing so, they will begin to gain some control over their OCD. Participants, families, and professionals will observe experienced group leaders guide attendees into choosing achievable goals.
