Thank you for your interest
If you are a clinician in the fields of psychology, mental health, or social work, we are proud to share the OSSiBD materials with you. Please fill out the contact form at the bottom of this page to receive the materials and instructions.
OSSiBD is fully manualized so no specific training is required for mental health clinicians. However, it is necessary to read all materials and instructions before hosting the group. The materials are self-guided but training is available to those who feel they would benefit from it.
OSSiBD is intended to be used in a small group setting. For example, the program can be run by completing one session per week in an outpatient/private practice setting or multiple times per week in an inpatient setting.
How does this fit into my clinic, program, or practice?
OSSiBD is incredibly versatile and can be used successfully in a variety of settings.

Which of my clients might be good candidates for an OSSiBD group?
It is necessary to screen participants. Facilitators may want to administer the Patient Screening Questionnaire (included in the materials) or conduct a brief interview about individuals' feeling of self-stigma before admitting them to the group.
