Getting Through It Together: Parent OCD Support Group
At Palo Alto Therapy, we are committed to giving you the tools to help your family live a healthier and more peaceful life!
General Information and Overview
Our Getting Through It Together Parent OCD Support Group connects parents of children of all ages with OCD who are struggling with similar situations. This group allows for participants to openly share struggles and successes, and gain encouragement, empathy, and understanding from those who know the common struggles with OCD intimately. There will be a focus on discussing “what’s working”, solid OCD knowledge, as well as encouragement (not shaming) of treatment strategies, such as reducing “accommodations” and the harmful effects OCD can have on the family. The support and information provided will be tailored to the needs of the group.
You’ll also receive a one-time 30-minute one-on-one meeting with the group facilitator. This meeting will allow you time to share a bit about your experiences and will allow for the group facilitator to get to know you better prior to joining the group to ensure this is an appropriate resource for you.
Living with someone with OCD can be challenging, so we created this group to help provide strength and community for you!
Please be advised that this is a support group and is not therapy. Depending on what problems arise, therapy may be recommended. If this is needed, Palo Alto Therapy would be happy to explore this option with you or give referrals as appropriate.
