17 Dec Cognitive Flexibility in Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder and Anxiety
This remote study is solely funded by the department of psychology at Rosalind Franklin University and seeks to better understand how stress caused by intrusive thoughts influences people's ability to think. Participants will be asked to do three things: 1. complete surveys asking about their mental health symptoms and who they are as a person, 2. complete four tasks of mental abilities, and 3. observe two videos of photos of everyday objects.
Participation is voluntary and you must be 18 years or older to participate, be able to read and
understand English, currently admitted to one of AMITA Health’s OCD and Anxiety partial hospitalization or intensive outpatient treatment centers in Hoffman Estates, and be diagnosed with at least one of the following diagnoses: obsessive compulsive disorder, a depressive disorder such as major depressive disorder, or an anxiety disorder such as generalized anxiety disorder, panic disorder, social anxiety disorder, or a diagnosed phobia. Participants must be willing to download a program called “TeamViewer” to participate.
