Family Accommodation

 Broadcast live on Saturday 27th November 2021


Dr Maxine Howard, Clinical Psychologist
Dr Sasha Walters, Senior Clinical Psychologist

Presentation subject

As you know, OCD doesn’t just affect young people; it frequently draws family members into distressing and impairing rituals and routines. In this talk, we will explore the concept of family ‘accommodation’ and ways that families can support their loved one to stand up to the OCD bully.
