Wholehearted Parenting – OCD…IS IT ROBBING YOU OF YOUR PARENTING JOY?
Are you an excessive worrier? Do you find that you’re unable to let go of repetitive thoughts swirling around in your brain? These thoughts may even seem irrational or disturbing. Perhaps you wish you could be more like other parents…ones who are able to allow their children to play in the park without an obsessive need to keep them safe at all times.
Please join our conversation today as we talk about Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. Although children can have OCD, we’re going to focus more on parents with OCD. We’re going to explore how a parent’s OCD can affect their child, and ways to minimize the impact, for both the child and parent.
So I’ve invited my guest, Kari Warren, to join our conversation.
Kari is a psychotherapist with a private practice in Charleston, SC. Kari has a special interest in anxiety, panic disorder, childhood sexual abuse, and OCD. She is a member of the International OCD Foundation and the Anxiety and Depression Association of America. In addition, Kari has received specific OCD training from Dr. Reid Wilson, author and director of the Anxiety Disorders Treatment Center in Chapel Hill and Durham, NC.
Hope you’ll join us!
