Beyond OCD Advisor Gail B. Adams to Speak in Sweden
Date:4/26/2013

Chicago, IL (PRWEB) April 26, 2013

Jeanne Ettelson, president of Beyond OCD, announced that Dr. Gail B. Adams, educational psychologist and a member of Beyond OCD’s Scientific Advisory Board, will speak about helping students with OCD at a special conference for teachers, special educators, child psychologists and school nurses in Stockholm, Sweden. The conference is being organized by Ananke, the Swedish OCD foundation, in conjunction with The National Support organization for persons with AD/HD, Tourette syndrome and Asperger syndrome.

Dr. Adams’ presentation, titled “What Hindrances Do Children with OCD Experience in School?” will consist of an overview of the most common obsessions and compulsions among children and adolescents with OCD, and how these symptoms affect them in school. She will also be addressing general and specific strategies school personnel can implement to help students with OCD function more effectively in the school setting.

Dr. Adams, author of the groundbreaking book, “Students with OCD: A Handbook for School Personnel,” has worked in the area of children’s mental health issues for over 20 years. As a researcher, she has extensively examined the impact of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) on school-aged children and the role of school personnel in identifying, assessing and treating OCD. She is an experienced speaker who has provided educational training on OCD, AD/HD, Tourette Syndrome, and Asperger’s Syndrome to physicians, mental health professionals, school personnel, parents and students. In addition, she has worked closely with school personnel and parents to facilitate and improve the performance of students with OCD who struggle in school.
