Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) has often been described as a secret illness. Individuals often find their obsessions and compulsions embarrassing and very difficult to talk about. Being in a group offers a means to normalize these uncomfortable feelings and emotions. The group can provide a safe environment to explore and discuss obsessions and fears and learn from others how to manage their difficulties. The group can also be a great place to practice exposures and can be a therapeutic environment as well as a supportive environment.
