Dr. Lebowitz kindly agreed to discuss SPACE with me, particularly in its utility for OCD Treatment, for the launch event of the My OCD Care Online Lecture Series. Learn more about it and future lectures here: myocdcare.com/lectures
I hope the talk will educate the public that the treatment is more complex than simply not accommodating child's avoidance behavior.
Feel free to share the link with anyone or any group who may be interested.
Thank you Elliot for the wonderful interview with Dr Lebowitz and specifically minutes 24 through 16 where you touched on how SPACE treatment might apply to the ‘failure to launch’ young adult group.That was awesome!! That video led me to your website and then to this forum. STRONG WORK !
At the moment I am not aware of a trained provider in Oregon. If there is a clinician you know in the area perhaps you can introduce them to the program.
Thank you, Elliot and Dr. Lebowitz, for this interview, and helping get the word out to more therapists and parents. Two of my four kids have OCD, my oldest (27 years old) is successfully managing it, but my youngest (14.5 years old) is really suffering with severe symptoms. I'm eager to get started with the SPACE treatment, and would be thrilled to either find someone in my area (Portland, OR) who has taken the training or to do the sessions via the internet. I've purchased the books by Dr. Lebowitz, and will certainly be buying the workbook for parents as soon as it comes out.
