ADHD and Obsessive-Compulsive Spectrum Disorders
Copyright :


ADHD, characterized by issues of attention, hyperactivity, impulsivity and executive function often result in interference in all areas of functioning...  

Putting people at odds between their values and behaviors. 

Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD) characterized by rManual - epetitive thoughts and behaviors, can be annoying at the least and tormenting at worst.   

And ADHD and OCD share some overlapping territory—attention-shifting, flexibility, anxiety and goal-directed behaviors.  

Although both disorders need to be addressed, it’s helpful to assess which one is "driving the bus".  

In this session Dr. Olivardia shares techniques such as cognitive therapy, ACT and more to distinguish the differences and look-a-likes of ADHD and the OCD Spectrum and how they show up: 

  • Pure-O 
  • Hoarding Disorder 
  • Tic Disorder 
  • Body Focused Repetitive Behaviors  
  • Body Dysmorphic Disorder 

By learning to uncover the mystery of this diagnostic and common couple, you can help your clients move forward in their lives. 

Join us for this must-attend event that offers you concrete solutions in treating your ADHD+OCD clients!
