Mona H. Berman Kicks Off 2013 Beyond OCD Live Forum
Date:2/12/2013

Chicago, IL (PRWEB) February 12, 2013

Mona H. Berman, a private practitioner in Northfield, IL for 18 years, will kick off Beyond OCD’s 2013 OCD Live Forum series. This series is intended to educate OCD sufferers and their families about treatment options and the latest advances in the field. Ms. Berman will address parental concerns in a talk entitled “My child has OCD… Now what do I do??? (And what should I not do???)” Mona H. Berman is licensed clinical professional counselor and is a member of Beyond OCD’s Scientific Advisory Board. She specializes in treating children with anxiety disorders using cognitive behavioral therapy.

Parents will learn what to do when their child is diagnosed with OCD. They will find out what really helps their child and what may hinder recovery. Ms. Berman will help parents learn not to enable the OCD, not to give reassurance, and to recognize bad behavior versus anxious behavior. In addition, she will help parents learn whether to keep the school informed about the child’s OCD, whether the child would benefit from a 504 plan, and how to tolerate, rather than enable, their child’s anxiety. Parents will also learn how to be on the same page with a spouse or significant other in battling OCD. Lastly, parents will be coached on how to get support for themselves.

Two teens who have successfully tackled OCD will share their stories of triumph. Alexandra’s OCD revolved around checking and organizational mental rituals that significantly interfered with her quality of life. Hannah struggled with scrupulosity. Now each teen is a thriving, successful high school student.

This OCD Live Forum will be held on Wednesday, March 6, 2013 at NorthShore University HealthSystem (Evanston Hospital) in Evanston, IL. Admission is $10. People interested in attending can visit http://tinyurl.com/b42avgy or call Beyond OCD at 773-661-9530 to register.
