The OCD support group provides a motivational, educational, and collaborative space to assist individuals with OCD. The group functions as both a support and learning environment. It is open to individuals with OCD as well as their family and friends who would like to learn more about OCD and the most effective treatment approaches for tackling OCD.
The group meets every other Tuesday. Each session includes a combination of educational information along with group discussion, support and feedback, and questions from the group attendees.
Example topics of the educational OCD component includes the following:
– Being your own therapist
– Building and revising your exposure hierarchy
– The dangers of reassurance seeking and accommodation with OCD
– Cognitive reframing versus self reassurance
– Perfectionism and OCD

This is an ongoing group; individuals are welcome to join at any time. Individuals are invited to come to each group meeting or may attend at whatever frequency best suits their needs.
