The introduction to this manual indicated that the goal of treatment for OCD is not to eliminate intrusive obsessions, thoughts, images, and impulses, but to reduce their frequency and the discomfort that is associated with them. Read the first page
This book was recommended by a therapist as a member of my family has OCD.The idea was for them to read it, but i also decided to have a look and found it very interesting and helpful.I now understand what OCD is and can help them through a very difficult time.

Excellent treatment manual for a therapist4 Feb. 2008
- Published on Amazon.com
I'm currently a doctoral student in a clinical psychology program and had the opportunity to use this manual with one of my clients. It provides an excellent Psychoeducation section with clear rationale for treatment. A simple and clear treatment guideline is described and sufficient examples are provided. Handouts are good and further drive-in the rationale for treatment. Treatment is essentially Exposure and Relapse Prevention with a primarily behavioral slant, but there is a well-developed cognitive component as well. Homework forms are useful, informative, and easy for the client to follow.
My one complaint is that relevant research literature is not cited, or noted for further information. Most people looking at this manual probably already have that information anyway though.
