Understanding Identity-Based OCD: Challenges and Strategies

Elliot Kaminetzky, Ph.D.

Monday May 13th 12pm EDT

Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) can present itself through intrusive, persistent doubts surrounding one's identity. This includes a presentation that has been referred to as Gender Identity OCD (GOCD), where obsessions focus on gender identity. Individuals with this manifestation experience relentless doubts and anxieties about their gender identity, leading to a constant cycle of rumination and analysis. This webinar will delve into the unique challenges faced by individuals grappling with this, and offer participants therapeutic strategies tailored to address the complex and nuanced issues inherent in identity-based OCD related to gender.
