Product Description

Synopsis

Do you know about the Doomsayer? He's the guy dressed in ragged clothes, hanging around on street corners with a cardboard sign that reads, 'The End Is Near!' He's always ready to tell you that mobile phones cause cancer, air traffic fatalities are up this year, and locusts are poised to swarm the city. Having OCD is a lot like having this character living inside your head. He's with you all the time; he knows your deepest fears, and he's not afraid to use them. You try to brush him off at first, but he's so sure of himself, so persistent that you find yourself taking his proclamations to heart. And you worry - a lot. Is my mobile giving me a tumour?What about those locusts? The anxiety of not knowing is unbearable. After a while, you start engaging in little rituals to keep the Doomsayer at bay. You wash your hands three times after you make a phone call. You check the garden once, twice, three times for locusts. You get little relief from your rituals, though. Soon the Doomsayer is onto that trick, and the doubting comes back with a vengeance. What can you do? A lot, it turns out.

"Coping with OCD" offers a simple and engaging programme that can get anyone with mild to moderate OCD started on the road to recovery.The book begins with a crash course on what OCD is - and what it is not. Readers will learn to think realistically about their condition and how it is likely to change over time. The book proposes a three-part programme for recovery that uses safe and gradual exposure to distressing thoughts and situation, mindfulness practice, and techniques to restructure thinking. Additional chapters address shame and blame, depression, and maintaining progress. The book includes a helpful list of resources for further reading and additional support.

Really great book. I found the sections on Primarily Obsessional OCD and mindfulness meditation very helpful.

Very helpful and concise 18 Jun. 2009
By M. Silverman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I've read about ten books on OCD and many others on anixety in general, I've found this book to be much less intimidating than some because it offers alternatives to Exposure Response Prevention which can be helpful for some, but it can also but too difficult for others depending on what type of OCD they have and how severe it is. This book incorporates some ideas of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) in a way that doesn't pick one over the other but pulls out helpful ideas and techniques from both. The fact that it is relatively short doesn't mean that it doesn't have much info, it is just organized well and easy to read.

The best OCD book I've read! 5 Aug. 2009
By Beth A. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I have read many books on the topic, and this is the most concise, complete, and supportive book I've come across. Another GREAT book, but much longer, is Obsessive Compulsive Disorders by Fred Penzel.

By Michael J. Dowling - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Our 16-year-old daughter has OCD, and a therapist at a leading university recommended this book to us. We've read other books, but this is the best we've seen. Comprehensive, practical, and easy to read.

A must read! 18 Sept. 2014
By Happy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book has been most helpful when I cant get out of my thoughts. For anyone suffering from intrusive thoughts its extremely exhausting and depressing. My mind never stops going and I have always been a fearful person since i was a kid. To help me deal with the scary thoughts I always use my imagination to help me escape the fear and panic. I constantly have scary thoughts and images and I always thought i was a alone. My thoughts lead me to have major panic attacks and sometimes I cant sleep. I love this book because its very easy to read and I finally have some real tools to help me deal with my thoughts. I like how they say to not fight your thoughts. Its true the harder I fight the worse I get. An example "while i dont like this thought, i fully accept it being there," doing this causes some anxiety but it helps me to let it go easier. Its so simple but harder to do. I also like that they say we are not bad people if we suffer from intrusive thoughts. Anything that is dear to my heart especially my faith in Jesus Ocd attacks it. I suffer from scrupulosity and i love how the authors remind me that I am not a bad person! This book has been my go to whenever I have relapses in my recovery. I was reading several chapters today reminding myself to breathe, accept the thoughts and know that I'm not a bad person. Thanks to the authors for writing an easy to read book for those who suffer from intrusive thoughts!
