Fear of Heaven or Harm - Clarifying the Distinction Between OCD/Anxiety and Doing the Will of G-D

The course will describe a conceptualization of religious OCD that can help clarify for clients and therapists how to address these symptoms. Specifically, the course will focus on differentiating between what aspects of religious behavior are considered OCD and what are actually religious in nature. A case presentation will be included to illustrate the ideas.
