ACT: Taking Hurt to Hope – Struggling with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)

You have probably stood outside your door and felt unsure you shut of the stove or locked a door and that uneasiness might have sparked some checking rituals. This is natural but problems arise when these rituals take up more and more time and energy from your valued life. In today’s program you will learn from an expert, Dr Michael Twohig, Associate Professor at the department of Psychology at Utah State University about how ACT approaches OCD. Mike tells us about typical symptoms and how we can learn to accept feelings of uneasiness without the time consuming rituals. Michael Twohig is the author of Twohig, M. P., & Hayes, S. C.
