September Educational Luncheon with Lori Riddle-Walker EdD, MFT
Friday, September 11, 2015 from 12-1:30pm
At times distinguishing OCD obsessions from depressive rumination can be difficult. Key issues to assess are the thought content, emotional reaction, and resulting covert behaviors such as mental compulsions, reassurance seeking, and avoidance. Dealing with obsessional content that is both anxiety producing and depressive can create special challenges in treatment. The speaker will discuss each of these important issues and provide the audience with concrete and evidence based assessment and treatment techniques.
