For sufferers, it serves as a self-help treatment guide for understanding the disorder and using proven treatment techniques to bring about symptom reduction. For clinicians, it serves as a treatment manual that can assist in making the initial diagnosis, identifying the particular OCD subtype, and developing a successful treatment plan." --Paul R.
