‘What if I just stabbed my spouse?’ ‘What if I purposely hurt my baby?’ ‘What if that pain in my stomach is actually cancer?’ Obsessions can take many forms and no subject is off-limits. Some clients who present to therapy may be experiencing extreme anxious distress that can take the form of obsessive negative intrusive thoughts. Participants in this workshop will learn strategies to help clients respond to and better manage these obsessions that can leave them stuck, uncomfortable, disturbed, and even functionally impaired.
