Support For Families: A Panel Discussion Presented by OCD So Cal’s Board of Directors!
October 10, 2020 at 11:00 am - 1:00 pm
To celebrate OCD Awareness Week, OCD Southern California will be hosting a virtual panel discussion to educate family members and loved ones about obsessive-compulsive disorder. The event will start with a brief introduction of the featured speakers, and then the educational panel will begin! The topics include:
Family Accommodation (Barbara Van Noppen, Ph.D., LCSW)
Kids, Teens, and OCD (Jenny Yip, Psy.D.)
Treatment Resistance (Melissa Mose, LMFT)
Medications (Sean Sassano-Higgins, M.D)
The virtual event will conclude with a question and answer segment with the presenters, allowing attendees to interact with the speakers. Concluding the event will be a Family and Loved One’s OCD Support Group, hosted by OCD So Cal board members Chris Trondsen, M.S., AMFT, APCC, Liz Trondsen, and Patricia Bosvay. This will give those in attendance additional time to ask questions and offer and receive support from other families in attendance.
