Mindfulness and Intrusive Thoughts OCD Webinar
Thursday, May 20, 2021 12:00 pm
- 1:00 pm ET

Intrusive thoughts can create intense anxiety and lead to rumination for those who suffer from them. Mindfulness can be a helpful tool to understand and manage intrusive thoughts. Drs. Kissen & Greene will share tips and tools to apply mindfulness to these thoughts. Doing so will help you reduce anxiety and cope with the thoughts in a healthy way.  Mindfulness-based CBT for intrusive thoughts will teach you to view the thoughts with a nonjudgmental, acceptance-based stance. 

The webinar is the second of a two-part series and it is recommended that you watch part one prior to watching part two.

Dr. Kissen and ADAA

"I was lucky enough to do my early practicums under the leadership and guidance of Dr. Karen Cassiday who is now president of ADAA. I learned from Dr. Cassiday that time spent with ADAA is one of the best professional investments that I could make. Through continuing education, professional connections and additional contact with mental health consumers, ADAA is truly my professional home. I have always had a passion for enhancing dissemination of empirically supported treatment protocols to mental health consumers. The public education committee offers a wonderful opportunity to create innovative programming to reach mental health consumers where they are, not just in the treatment room. I hope the future of mental health care delivery will allow for many more opportunities to expand access to mental health care through public education initiatives such as those spearheaded at ADAA."
