    Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD) is a common and often debilitating mental health condition characterized by unwanted intrusive thoughts (obsessions) and repeated distress-reducing behaviors (compulsions). Frequently misunderstood, misdiagnosed, and mistreated, this series of lectures will demystify OCD and related disorders and the most effective protocols for helping those who suffer from them. Attendees new to or heavily experienced in treating OCD and related disorders will gain knowledge from multiple perspectives. This unique format features six lectures from top experts in the field, scheduled across three sessions over the Spring season. This series includes experts presenting on the treatment of comorbid OCD and PTSD, the role of the “self” in OCD treatment, how to motivate OCD patients in treatment, recent updates in novel neurosurgical treatments of OCD, understanding and treating Panic Disorder, and the diagnosis and treatment of Obsessive Compulsive Personality Disorder.
