The 21st annual OCD Conference, presented by the International OCD Foundation, begins this Friday in Los Angeles. This extremely valuable conference is an excellent resource for individuals with OCD, their family, friends, therapists, researchers, and anyone who has any interest in OCD at all. What makes this conference so special is that professionals, people with OCD, and others from the general public all intermingle and share information and perspectives. A person who has experienced OCD has as much to offer as a professional who is doing research and treatment. People who attend the conference generally take note of the inviting atmosphere and the ease of interacting with individuals from all different backgrounds.
This year, I will have the honor of participating in two presentations at the conference, and co-leading a support group. If you are in, or near, the Los Angeles area, this is one conference worth checking into. For more information. look at the IOCDF’s conference website: http://www.ocd2014.org/
