“Playing the Game Against OCD: Strategies for the 6
The tenacity and strength of OCD can be intimidating to both therapist and client. Obviously, winning over OCD requires trust and faith in the principles of treatment, since resistance to change often stems from distressing uncertainty. But success also requires the resilience to push forward despite adversity. Ultimately, we are looking for a lifestyle of exposure that continues to push OCD back each and every time it tries to dominate us. In this workshop, Dr. Wilson will present the principles of a strategic approach which centers around delivering moment-by-moment self-help tactics against this challenger. The approach requires a few giant shifts in perspective. But, once taken, they can guide the difficult but simple – not complex -task that win the moment against the disorder.
