Living with Your Child’s OCD: A Group for Parents

RSVP required *
(RSVP Form Located Below)

Parental support accounts for roughly fifty percent of the success of the treatment of children and teens with OCD. But our own anxiety and confusion often get in the way of helping our kids. Working with OCD is often counter-intuitive and can be emotionally challenging, frustrating and exhausting. This group will allow you to meet with other parents with the guidance of an experienced OCD therapist who is also the parent of a child with OCD.

Topics of discussion will include:

  • Understanding OCD: the types, the course and the strategies
  • Common parenting traps and how to stop falling into them
  • The particular stressors and emotional strain of living with OCD: taking care of yourself and dealing with your own anxiety
  • Parenting skills specific to OCD treatment
  • Increasing competency behaviors in your child and reducing avoidance and symptomatic behaviors
  • Setting realistic goals and effective limits
  • Managing meltdowns, escalations and OCD moments: constructive approaches to anger and frustration
  • How to deal with siblings

We will also discuss issues as they arise within the group.

Thursdays from 7-9pm  ~ Starting August 10th 2017

First Group is Free ~Cost after that is $75 per group
