OCD-UK's Educational Webinar for Parents and Guardians
Parent/Guardian Webinar Update
Our Parents Webinar's are freely available for parents and guardians of children who are between the ages of 5-18 (CAMHS ages) and suffer from Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder
The National Lottery Community Fund has funded us to shape and deliver educational workshops across the East Midlands, specifically for parents and guardians of children who suffer from Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder. For more information on this project, click here www.ocduk.org/parents/
Unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, we have been unable to deliver any of our full day workshops, and we are unable to book any future events for the time being. We are aware that these workshops are important to many families, therefore, we have put together a webinar. As the workshop is a full day of information, you can probably imagine that it won’t be possible to deliver a webinar with the same structure as a full day workshop. However, what we have done is created a webinar with some of the key factors to help educate parents and guardians until we are able to open bookings and re-book the workshops. The webinar is approximately 2/2 and a half hours and will cover the following topics;
- What is OCD
- How OCD works
- Reassurance Seeking & Accommodating OCD
The aim of this webinar is to understand OCD in more depth, as well as learn a few tools in coping with OCD at home. Questions are welcomed throughout the presentation, however, as this is only a 2/2 and a half hour webinar, we will not have time to answer specific questions related to personal experiences. However, project lead Zoe is happy to book a meeting or arrange a phone call separately after the webinar to talk further if needed.
Please note, before booking a space on this webinar, the material in the presentation is only relevant to parents and guardians with children between the ages of 5-18.
There is a limit of one ticket per family, per webinar.
