Episode One Of Two!
Be sure to tune into episode 11 for the second half of our conversation.
OCD Is Not An Adjective.
On this week’s episode of So, How’s Therapy? I am joined by Tatyana Mestechkina, Ph.D. to dive deep into the topic of obsessive-compulsive disorder, or OCD.
Trigger Warning: Sexual Thoughts / Thoughts Of Harming Others: We discuss a few examples of intrusive thoughts within the context of OCD that have content of violent and/or sexual nature.
While the term OCD is commonly known, it is also commonly misunderstood. Obsessive-compulsive disorder is often portrayed in the media as someone who washes their hands over and over again, or someone who has to have everything in its place – but it’s much more than that.
Today we'll be demystifying OCD, and helping you understand it at a much deeper level.
What You’ll Learn
- What OCD is (and what it is not)
- Causes of OCD
- How OCD affects the lives of those who experience it
- Different types and subtypes of OCD
- Treatment of OCD
