DESCRIPTION

PRIVATE WORKSHOP

FAMILY GUIDE: PURE O - HOW TO HELP A FAMILY MEMBER WHO HAS PURE-INTRUSIVE THOUGHTS

Join Carol Edwards in this private workshop where she discusses sexual, religious and harm obsessions in obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). Carol starts the e-course with an introduction on pure-intrusive thoughts. She then talks about the problems that relate to self-harm behaviours versus self-harm obsessions and how to observe issues that can create conflict during treatment. She then clarifies the difference between suicide-intrusive thoughts and suicide ideation and the dangers to watch out for as a result. In a later chapter, Carol goes over the issues to help readers better understand sexual obsessions that include gay, incest, paedophile and transgender-intrusive thoughts. She addresses ways to help families manage these types of thoughts by explaining obsessional doubt and cognitive change for better outcomes. She then takes families and caregivers through the active process of therapy to show how a FM can defeat OCD. Finally, Carol highlights a series of steps to understand PANDAS (and PANS), a paediatric autoimmune neuropsychiatric disorder associated with streptococcal infections. And she examines how a teen or adult FM might have developed a rapid onset of obsessive-compulsive symptoms following PANDAS in or during childhood. The author's perceptive observations in an often misunderstood category of OCD is clearly written with helpful suggestions that point towards a FM's recovery. A series of homework checks to reinforce the learning objects accompanies this document. Interaction with the author is included during the course.
