Discussion in this training focuses on Ms. Tarter’s experience of OCD. This experience involves a repetitive cycle of overwhelming obsessions that causes great anxiety and elicits her attempts to decrease this anxiety through the use of rituals that are only briefly satisfying in decreasing the anxiety. Ms Tarter explains that there is no cure for OCD and iterates the idea that folks must learn how to cope with the illness through techniques such as controlled breathing, the use of coping statements, tactile strategies and finally, medication.
