The national OCD charity, run by and for people with lived experience of OCD
2020 Virtual OCD-UK Conference - Welcome to Hotel OCD-UK, flying the flag for recovery!
OCD may try to creep back, but we don’t have to let it in!
Presentation prepared by
Dr Josie Millar
Professor Paul Salkovskis
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.
