On Demand OCD & Anxiety Lecture Series: Helping the Families of OCD Treatment-Refusers

This presentation was originally reviewed on May 20, 2021, and broadcast live online on April 23, 2021, from 9:00 AM - 10:30 AM ET. 

The views and opinions expressed by this presenter in this lecture are their own, and do not represent the views of Sheppard Pratt.

Families are the forgotten victims of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), especially when the individual affected is unwilling to seek help. Clinicians typically have little to offer these families, believing nothing can be done until the individual’s motivation for treatment changes. This presentation will describe Family Well-Being Consultation (FWBC), an approach developed to help families of individuals with OCD who do not seek recovery. Participants in this workshop will learn the family interaction patterns typically surrounding treatment-refusal, methods for assessing family interaction patterns, and a treatment model developed to improve family functioning and promote treatment-seeking. The presentation will use a combination of lecture, slides, demonstrations, and case discussion.

 

Target Audience

This activity is intended for physicians, nurses, psychologists, social workers, counselors, therapists and other mental health professionals.

Learning Objectives

1. Define the concept of recovery avoidance.

2. Describe two types of family responses that reinforce recovery avoidance.
