  • Define Harm OCD: What it is and what it is not
  • Discuss how to assess for Harm OCD and rule-out more truly dangerous diagnoses.
  • Review briefly the Gold Standard in treating OCD, Exposure & Response Prevention (ERP), and how to apply ERP strategies to this often difficult to treat manifestation of OCD.

Workshop Description:

If you work with OCD or would like to learn more about OCD, understanding Harm OCD is a must. Having violent thoughts is a normal human experience -- Yes, it is normal. What a person does with those thoughts and the meaning they assign to them is much more important than the fact that the thoughts exist. For people with Harm OCD, the thoughts can be horrifying and debilitating if left untreated. For people trying to understand and treat Harm OCD, the thoughts can also be pretty darn scary if you’re not sure what to do. Please join us for this live-streaming Zoom interview with expert Jon Hershfield, LMFT to receive an hour packed full of helpful information.
