LIVE webinar with Prof Salkovskis - Tue 9th May

Last month we launched our inaugural LIVE webinar with Canadian OCD specialist Professor Adam Radomsky, which received fantastic feedback and reviews.

Our online webinars use modern technology to bring international OCD specialists and people affected by Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD) together. The webinar is open to anybody with an interest in learning more about OCD, all you need is a good internet connection to watch and listen to the webinar straight from your internet browser on your computer or via an app on mobile devices.

Our second live webinar will take place from 6pm on Tuesday 9th May with OCD specialist Professor Paul Salkovskis.

The webinars will offer people affected by OCD the opportunity to learn from these specialists and even the ability to ask questions. We had over 60 people register for our inaugural webinar, our audience included people with OCD, family members and health professionals.

Access is once again completely free of charge for OCD-UK members, but there is a small nominal charge of just £5 for non-members. Due to limited space members still need to register to reserve their spot, but will not be charged. To register and for further details please visit the webinar website at: http://www.ocdwebinar.org
