AFOP® Group Workout
The Group therapy is indicated for people who suffer from an Obsessive Disorder or Anxiety and want to confront their OCD in a radical and conclusive way, in order to get a head start in their curing process.
It is also suited to those people who would like to overcome personal obstacles, shyness, difficulties in communication, social interactions, speaking in public or those who want to overcome the fears and anxiety that are currently making it difficult for them to advance either professionally or socially.
The program is based on the theory and application of the AFOP® (Activación y Focalización Pulsional; Drive Activation and Focalization) Method, developed by Damián Ruiz, the director of IPITIA, International Psychological Institute of Barcelona. Those who suffer from an obsessive disorder often refer to the sensation of living “in a prison”, the prison of the mind. Passion, spontaneity, decision making, firmness, eroticism, sensuality, concentration and enjoying the present moment are some of the elements that tend to disappear considerably in the life of a person who suffers from OCD.
To recuperate the connection with these elements is not just a metaphor. Actually it requires real change on a biochemical level in the central nervous system. The goal of this intensive group workout is to reach a turning point in your treatment process, since this is a necessary step in overcoming OCD.
