OCD Conference 2019
Join us for the 4th annual OCD Southern California OCD conference! This year we are thrilled to have Jeff Sparr and his team from Peacelove as our keynote speaker. Jeff will present a workshop that allows us all to express ourselves artistically and experience the peace of mind his work has brought to many.
PeaceLove co-founder Jeff Sparr is a man on an audacious mission – to help millions of people create peace of mind through expressive arts and storytelling. A family man, self-taught artist, and teacher, Jeff is above all a survivor, battling Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) much of his life. On a whim, and with no background or training, Jeff decided to try his hand at painting. Like discovering a superpower, he found painting dramatically subdued the symptoms of his OCD, providing a creative outlet and sense of control. This discovery changed the course of Jeff’s life, and he wanted to share it with the world. Through his workshops, participants experience improved mental wellness and gain new tools to talk about mental health.
Registration is from 10AM - 10:45 AM. We offer continental breakfast and will hold a professional mixer for clinicians. Following the keynote speaker, lunch is provided. During lunch, we offer an opportunity to meet with others, visit one of the many resource booths or participate in a genetic study. In the afternoon, conference attendees will choose to attend two of the seven presentations/workshops offered. A craft room for our youngest attendees is set up during the afternoon sessions where we will also be playing "Unstuck, an OCD Kids' Movie" along with other videos.
