    Understanding Trauma, OCD, and Scrupulosity – part 1 by Conrad Eby

    Understanding Trauma, OCD, and Scrupulosity – part 1 by Conrad Eby

    Strength to Strength welcomed Conrad Eby to discuss his experience in understanding and dealing with behaviors resulting from trauma.
    Trauma, defined as any extraordinary disruption of a person’s inner world, can be the beginning of emotional distress and mental illness. Anxiety disorders such as obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) can be a result of trauma.
    Scrupulosity is a form of OCD that gets wrapped up in conscience issues, making it difficult for very good people to be at rest. Join us as we unpack why, what, when, and where, along with how to treat it effectively.

    Strength to Strength welcomed Brackin Kirkland to share his life testimony.
    In Brackin’s own words:
    I grew up in a Christian home, but I made many bad decisions in my teenage years, which led me into a life of sin and rebellion. But the Lord was with me all along the way, and His grace brought me back to life again in my early 20’s. As a result, now I’m thankful for the opportunity to share His grace – His power – with a lost and dying world.An interactive question-and-answer period follows.
