Beyond Treatment Network – OCD in School Settings

December 14, 2021 at 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm CST

Do you or someone you love have OCD? Take the opportunity to connect with others to share, learn and connect.

About this event

Are you working to overcome OCD and want to have connection and supports after treatment, or supporting someone with OCD? The Beyond Treatment Network, created by OCD Wisconsin, provides a safe space for sharing, understanding and information. Not a lecture series, clinical intervention or therapy, through BTN you can share experiences and walk together down the sometimes challenging road of recovery.

Tonight we focus on the challenges posed in coping with OCD in school settings – from the perspectives of both the person coping with the disorder and educators and administrators who want to provide support.

Your facilitators will be Neeley Welch-Lamers, MS, LPC, PMH-C, licensed professional counselor at Counseling and Consulting Professionals in Appleton, WI; Annie Welsh, alternative education instructor and Brie Decker, school psychologist, both from Oconomowoc High School in Oconomowoc, Wisconsin. Some possible topics include:

  • Back to school anxiety
  • School refusal
  • COVID-19 and the “new normal”

We start with a brief overview and introduction by the facilitators of the topic and some possible points of discussion. The rest is up to you – the experts! It’s a time to support one another, offer encouragement and your own experiences and how to overcome the challenges you navigate after treatment.

If you have participated in our BTN program before, you may notice that we’ve changed the structure a bit to provide more time for you to talk with one another, and have less structured time with speakers and slides. We want you to take full advantage of being able to connect with those who have similar experiences.

Zoom link and passcode will be provided upon completed registration.
