Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD): What is it? How can we help young people experiencing it?
When: Friday, January 28 - 12:00 PM
Duration: 1 hours
Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) is a chronic, common, and long-lasting problem in which a person has reoccurring and uncontrollable thoughts or obsessions and/or behaviors or compulsions that one feels the urge to repeat over and over. People experiencing OCD generally have difficulty controlling their thoughts or behaviors even if they recognize them as excessive and they interfere with their daily functioning. This webinar will serve as an introduction to the signs and symptoms of OCD amongst children, as well as the best practices for treatment. Participants will understand how to assess these challenges and leave with recommendations for working with youth and families.
