Presentation prepared by

Dr Josie Millar
Delivered by 
Professor Paul Salkovskis

Presentation subject

Josie and Megan are teaming up to talk about the importance of keeping well after helpful therapy. They will be talking about what the research says about why OCD might try to creep back in and what we can do to make sure it doesn’t.

Josie will be talking about this from the perspective of the therapist and researcher and Megan will be sharing from her personal experience of what has been helpful.
