New OCD Programs: Virtual Support Calls + Case Consultation
Message from the President
I am pleased to announce two very special programs that will enable so many people who suffer from OCD, anxiety and related disorders to get the help they desperately need. These programs are free to the consumer, but we would greatly appreciate appreciate donations to help us administer and ultimately continue with our important work. Please consider clicking on the donate tab on the lower left hand to support our mission. Be a part of our growing family!
Both our virtual calls will have a "soft" launch of 1 call a month for a 2- 3-month trial period. Members of our Scientific Advisory Board will discuss the results and make the necessary adjustments moving forward so that we can offer the best possible program. We will make our public announcement at that time.Please share this information with others that may not be on our mailing list. By doing so, you will be taking part in our growth!

These calls will provide people who suffer from OCD, anxiety and related disorders the opportunity to share their experiences and learn from listening to others. We recognize that in many areas of the country there is limited access to qualified treatment providers. These call will not replace therapy, but will help the caller understand that Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is essential to managing symptoms. This support group is also intended to help people with their feelings of isolation and shame, and will make you feel part of a community. Not everyone will be able to speak on these calls. If you have a topic or something you would like to be considered for discussion on the call, please email your suggestion to Dr. Rodney Benson: email@example.com Please include the call date on the body of your subject line so we know which call you will be on.

These calls will provide therapists who treat OCD, anxiety and related disorders the opportunity to discuss cases that would benefit from the counsel of therapists who are experts in the field of cognitive behavioral therapy. It is also intended for therapists who have little CBT training and are looking for additional help for their patients.
Our goal is to increase the awareness of the benefit and results of CBT to help more and more people. Please join us.
