The OCD support group provides a motivational, educational, and collaborative space to assist individuals with OCD. The group functions as both a supportive and learning environment. It provides a compassionate and safe space for individuals who would like to process their OCD with peers and learn more about OCD and the most effective OCD treatment approaches.
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
– Thought Defusion and OCD
– Values and Goals
