OCD Centre Manitoba (OCDC) is a non-profit organization that provides support, education and information to people with OCD, members, family, friends and professionals, and promotes medical and social research of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD).
We offer education, resources and support to those with OCD, their friends, family and the general public.
Our Support Groups:
ADULTS WITH OCD SUPPORT GROUP:
Those willing and ready can share their triumphs or challenges over the past month. Participants listen and lend support to each other with an emphasis on self help strategies and peer support.
FRIENDS & FAMILY SUPPORT GROUP:
This group is open to families and to individuals who care for or live with someone who has OCD. Videos and resource materials are available and discussions are held in a round table where families can share their experiences as well as provide support and suggestions to one another. A great venue to voice questions and concerns.
COMPULSIVE HOARDING SUPPORT GROUP:
The facilitator encourages members to work toward their goals by utilizing cognitive behavior therapy techniques. The format of the meetings will vary according to discussion topics and de-cluttering exercises.
HOARDING READING GROUP:
A second group for persons with hoarding disorder that runs in addition to the general Compulsive Hoarding Support Group. Participants work through the book, ‘Buried in Treasures- Help for Compulsive Acquiring, Saving and Hoarding’ by David Tolin, Randy Frost and Gail Steketee.
Copies are available to purchase from the OCDC office.
GOAL GROUP (post CBT):
A term based group for those who have had professional led Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). Participants are encouraged to set goals, and through peer support, learn new skills and ideas and continue their self led therapy to control and reduce their OCD symptoms.
Terms run for 8-10 sessions in the spring and fall.
BUILDING BLOCKS GROUP:
A group similar to the Adults OCD Group but with an added emphasis on Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP). Participants who have not received professional therapy can work together on combating their compulsive OCD symptoms.
OCDC BOOK CLUB:
Unlike a traditional book club, this group works together on OCD related workbooks and materials to aid members in their recovery process. Group members participate in lectures, small group activities, discussions and completing their workbook assignments.
All support groups held in the evening at FACES 100 – 4 Fort Street, Winnipeg.
