The Obsessive Compulsive Syndrome
Aug 02, 1987
In this lecture, Dr. Packer will deal with the broad spectrum of obsessive-compulsive behavior, ranging from its relatively minor use as a defense mechanism to the most serious neurosis inhibiting performance and severely undercutting a person's life. She will cover the syndrome's development, its various symptoms, and the underlying core evaluations on which it rests. Dr. Packer will discuss the resulting attitudes affecting the individual's work and his dealings with people, in particular his capacity for friendships and romantic relationships.
In her second session, Dr. Packer will answer questions on various aspects of psychological theory and psychotherapy.
