Workshop Registration for OCD Training

You are Not “So OCD”: What OCD Is and Isn’t (and hint, it’s NOT an adjective) by Joanna Hardis, LISW-S held on Wednesday, February 28, 2024 from 9am-11am ET via Zoom

It is estimated that 1 in 100 adults develops OCD (source IOCDF) yet most clinicians are not trained to diagnose or treat it. It is an illness that is misunderstood in the media and among many mental health professionals. According to the IOCDF (International Obsessive Compulsive Disorder Foundation), it can take the average person up to 17 years to receive adequate treatment. For that reason, it is imperative that more clinicians are educated and clients can receive the proper diagnosis and treatment. In this training, we seek to bridge that gap with the objectives below:

– Understand the DSM V diagnostic criteria for Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)
– Understand the difference between OCD and GAD (Generalized Anxiety Disorder)
– Have a basic understanding of the evidence based treatment options for OCD
– Understand the common co-morbidities seen with OCD
