2021-2022 Annual Report

The OCD SIG hosts monthly peer consultation calls that bring members together, with a focus on clinical consultation, case conceptualization and connecting members to resources and referrals. Our consultation calls provide clinicians with a supportive space to discuss complex cases, understand differential diagnoses, and adapt evidence-based interventions. In the past, we have also collaborated with the Social Anxiety and Child and Adolescent SIGs to host cross-SIG consultation calls.   This past year our SIG has increased its emphasis on resources and referrals to aid in addressing limitations of accessing evidence-based care and to build our awareness of other providers and service programs in various areas. Our SIG has also worked to support members in adapting to telehealth services, understanding changing telehealth laws, practices and implementation of evidence-based practices virtually.   At the 2022 conference, we will discuss goals for the coming year, further develop our network and connect like-minded clinicians.
