OCD Central & South Florida
OCDCSFL was formed in 2016 and its board of directors have been very busy trying to launch the new affiliate’s programming in order to increase awareness of OCD and related disorders across our catchment area! In March 2017, OCDCSFL collaborated with Nova Southeastern University in Ft. Lauderdale, FL for a workshop entitled OCD: The Basics and Beyond, in which Marni L. Jacob, PhD, Judith Migoya, PsyD, and Elizabeth Penela, PhD presented on the assessment and treatment of OCD using CBT with ERP, as well as implementing ERP with more challenging presentations.
OCD Central and South Florida (OCDCSFL) held a workshop for OCD Awareness Week in October 2017, which was a collaboration between OCDCSFL and Roger’s Behavioral Health in Tampa, FL. Eric A. Storch, PhD presented on the Diagnosis, Assessment, and Treatment of OCD: A Primer for Professionals. We also held an event on March 16th at the Children’s Services Council of Palm Beach County entitled Complex Presentations in the Treatment of Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, which was a collaboration between OCDCSFL and the Florida Psychological Association – Palm Chapter. Connie L. Ingram, PhD, LMHC presented on OCD: Faith & Scrupulosity and both Jonathan Hoffman, PhD, ABPP and E. Katia Moritz, PhD, ABPP presented on OCD: Co-Morbidities & Complexities, and provided a hands-on workshop. Three (3) continuing education (CE) credits were be provided.
OCDCSFL is also excited to announce that we are expanding our board. We are currently looking to fill two positions: Social Media Manager and Fundraising Chair. We are also always looking for volunteers. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in getting involved!
