Our ‘Audience with’ events offer attendees a fantastic opportunity to hear from and interact with OCD experts in person.  Our events are designed for our guests to hear themed OCD presentations in a small intimate audience, allowing for in-depth and informative Q+A sessions.

This year we are delighted to host another event, an audience with Professor Roz Shafran in central London, on the evening of Wednesday 21st June 2023. The theme of the presentation will be behavioural experiments, for all aspects of OCD.

These events take three forms, Professor Shafran will present to the audience which will be followed by a short presentation or discussion with someone with lived experience of OCD. After the break and an opportunity for you to mingle with other guests, the floor is then opened to the audience for an open Q+A session with Professor Shafran and our hosts/speakers.

Our event is aimed primarily at people affected by OCD and/or their loved ones. OCD-UK members had priority booking, and the event is now open to all. Click here to register for the event.

This is a free event where OCD-UK will subsidise the cost. With limited spaces, please only book if you are able to attend on the evening of Wednesday 21st June. We ask you please advise us if you do book but later realise you can’t attend, this is to ensure the seat can be offered to someone else.
