- supporting research.
Members include mental health professionals as well as OCD sufferers, their families, and friends. OCDNJ has a Board of Directors and a Scientific Advisory Board.
Sunday, March 4th was OCD NJ’s event of the year — our 18th Annual Luncheon/Conference, which featured Dr. Marty Franklin, director of the Child and Adolescent OCD, Tic, Trich, and Anxiety Group (COTTAGe) at the Department of Psychiatry in the University of Pennsylvania, and now also the Clinical Director of the recently opened Rogers Behavioral Health treatment facility in Philadelphia. As in previous years, there was a Living with OCD Panel that discuss their experiences and took questions from the audience. CE credits for social workers, psychologists, and others were made available. Additionally, OCDNJ recently held a quarterly presentation on Monday, March 12th given by local therapist, Meir Flancbaum, PsyD, from the Center for Cognitive Behavior in East Brunswick, NJ. As always, this presentation was free and open to the public, for both lay people and mental health professionals.
