If you would like a speaker to visit your school, university, group, company or agency
to talk about Obsessive Compulsive Disorder or OC Spectrum disorders, please send an email to Debbie Iannuzzi. We will discuss the specific requirements for your group to develop a session which best fits your needs. Mental health professionals and/or other speakers who are knowledgeable about OCD and related disorders volunteer their time to provide this training. We do our best to find the most effective speaker or team of speakers to speak to your group. Although we do not charge for our time, we do accept donations to the Obsessive-Compulsive Foundation of Western Pennsylvania, Inc. We are a 501 C (3) non-profit agency. Your donation is tax deductible.
In addition to these specific training sessions, the Obsessive Compulsive Foundation of Western PA attempts to provide seminars and conferences on specific topics of concern to the OCD community. Many of these seminars are offered for free and are beneficial to both the general public and mental health professionals.
We also endeavor to sponsor more formal events which offer continuing education credit to mental health professionals and/or educators. These events require us to charge a reasonable tuition and generally involve a nationally recognized expert on the topic at hand. Additional information about these programs are listed on the OC Foundation of Western PA Events or you may contact us by email.
