Event description

Description

Dr. Allison Block will discuss Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD), a condition characterized by troubling thoughts, urges, or images – obsessions – which produce intense anxiety. People with OCD may try to ignore these troubling thoughts, or try to alleviate the anxiety by performing time- consuming ritualistic behaviors or compulsions. OCD can affect people of all ages, including children, and expresses itself differently in every patient, with some people having only obsessions or only compulsions, while others have both. Learn how to recognize the symptoms of OCD and why it can interfere with daily life, understand what is not OCD, possible treatments for this problem, and how you can help as a parent.
