Why OCD-UK workshops are unique

Our expertise is derived from our own lived experience of Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder. Both of our workshop facilitators have years of lived experience, including dealing with the challenges of OCD whilst working in high pressure environments.

This unique insight allows us to deliver training that is based on real experiences and enables us to sensitively explore the issues around OCD in an engaging way, whilst offering an insight into the complexities and severity of OCD.

We use our own experiences with OCD to break the ice and provide a platform that facilitates open conversations.

Employers Workshop

Many people still have the misconception that OCD is a personality quirk and a choice that people can snap out of. The fact is Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder is one of the most complex and devastating mental health problems, so much so that the World Health Organization once listed OCD in the top ten most disabling illnesses by loss of income and quality of life.

Employers Workshop Overview

This workshop gives an overview of the condition and draws on the experiences of the practitioner/trainer in developing skills to work with people who suffer from Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder.

It also gives an opportunity to seek out practical ideas, which can then be taken back to the workplace to create a supportive and understanding culture for those who suffer from OCD specifically or for those who may be struggling with mental health problems in general.

Insight into OCD

To enable managers and supervisors to recognise symptoms of OCD.

Impact of Stigma

To help managers understand how mental health stigma impacts on those affected.

Understanding

To empower supervisors to empathise and understand the consequences of OCD.

Coping Strategies

To explore ways and develop skills to help support colleagues affected by OCD.

Flexible Workshops

Our workshops are always tailored to a client's requirements where requested. They can be flexible and can be delivered as a half day or full day package. We do recommend the full day package, as it increases participation and in turn leads to increased learning potential.
