Intensive Group Treatment for OCD in Barcelona

What is the Intensive Group program?

The intensive group program is specifically designed for those who want to cope with the process of dissolving obsessive disorder, be it compulsive or not.

During one weekend there will be 16 hours of therapy and exercises in order to fully understand the causes of the obsessive problem, work it in a motivating and innovative way, and build a strong idea of how to continue in the process of reduction of the anxiety underlying the obsessive manifestations.

The program is based on the AFOP® methodology (Activation and Pulsional Focalisation), developed by Damián Ruiz, Psychologist (COPC), Judicial Analyst (IAAP) and director of IPITIA.

Intensive and specific attention to achieve a turning point that is important and decisive for the cure of obsessive symptomatology.

Why participate in the Intensive Group therapy?

The Intensive Group therapy aims to unblock the collapsed nervous system of the patient, due to fear, to the inhibition or repression generated at a given moment in his life, usually in childhood or adolescence.

On the other hand, our main objective is to develop, throughout the days, the awareness of the elements of your life that keep the problem and the strength to carry out the necessary changes. In this way you will start, from the first day and with the support of our team, to successfully face anxiety. The objective is to connect with the most inhibited aspects of your personality, which, in all likelihood, will be the liberating elements.

We accompany the dialectic therapy with a series of techniques, tools, exercises, body, oral, theatrical expression, so that you experience and begin to overcome the blockages that have caused the collapse of the nervous system throughout life.
