OCD-UK Parent Workshops

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone! 

We are delighted to announce that we have further dates for our parent workshops for parents of children between the ages of 5-18 with OCD. 

  • Northampton - Friday 7th January 2022
  • Derby - Thursday 3rd February 2022
  • Buxton - Saturday 5th March 2022
  • Leicester - Friday 1st April 2022

We have designed the workshops to be COVID safe, to ensure that those who are vulnerable to COVID-19 feel comfortable throughout the day. The host and co-host will take a lateral flow COVID-19 test a couple of days prior to the event, as well as providing disposable face masks should anyone wish to use one. Upon entry, there will be complimentary hand sanitiser available, as well as on the table(s). If you have any questions about COVID-19 and our parent workshops, please email parents@ocduk.org where we will be happy to answer any questions you may have.

We are offering parents the opportunity to attend a FREE full day workshop to help them understand OCD in an informative education programme whilst waiting for treatment to begin. The workshop will include education on the following:

  • What is OCD
  • How OCD is treated
  • Pathways to access treatment
  • What parents can do to help

Please note that the project hosts are not professionals and will not be offering therapeutic advice. The project is hosted by service-users who have an in depth understanding of OCD, and the aim of this workshop is to offer relevant and helpful information to restore hope for a recovery focused future.

The project is funded for parents with children aged 5-18 (CAMHS age) suffering from Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder

I am hoping to attend the Northampton workshop as will be travelling from London. Can you advise what the start and finish time is please? Thanks 

Hi DJ1000,

The workshops are from 9am to 5pm. 

Have you have booked a ticket to the Northampton workshop? Spaces are by booking only and after booking you will be sent an email with directions and timings.

If you haven’t booked, unfortunately we are fully booked for the Northampton workshop. However we will be opening our Derby workshop for bookings in the next coming weeks or we can add you to the cancellation list for Northampton, all you would need to do is email parents@ocduk.org and let our project lead Zoe know.

Gemma :)
