What: OCD Scriptathon 2017, A Group Scripting Experience
Where: Our office! Located at 11380 Prosperity Farms Road, Ste 209A, Palm Beach Gardens, Florida 33410
When: Tuesday, April 11, 2017 from 8:00 PM – Until It Ends
If you’ve ever practiced imaginal exposure, you’ve learned that having freaky thoughts on purpose can actually help you fight your OCD.
Please join us for Scriptathon 2017, a group scripting experience. This is an opportunity to put your worst fears and most horrific thoughts on display for the world to see.
Feel free to incorporate death, blasphemy, sexual thoughts, or any other distressing theme(s) that your OCD uses against you. This exposure experience is not for the faint of heart, and attendees should expect to hear things that might be disturbing or distressing. Also, please note that given the sensitive nature of the topics discussed, this event is for adults-only.
1) To read scary, horrible, or distressing scripts out loud for the sake of habituating to these themes.
2) To deal with uncertainty about what others might think about you or your scripts.
3) To help support others in their own scripting exposures.
All attendees should bring 3 scripts to the workshop. Click here for a blog post about scripting that includes some examples.
Your scripts may focus on the same theme or address multiple themes. You can make your scripts as short or as long as you’d like. Don’t censor yourself – feel free to lean into the most distressing version of the script without censoring or neutralizing. Scripts may be written in first-person, third-person, or whatever form you’d like. If you would like to present a conversation-style script (i.e., if your script consists of other people having a conversation about you), other attendees will be available to help you perform it.
This meeting will be a reassurance-free zone, so attendees are asked to refrain from providing reassurance.
Hope you can join us for this unique event!
