A complete, hands-on resource, this volume provides everything the mental health professional needs for working with clients who suffer from obsessions and compulsions. The initial chapters supply the background by describing in detail the most up-to-date, clinically relevant information available on obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD). The latter chapters comprise a step-by-step guide for conducting behavioral treatment. The book also features unusually practical appendices that include checklists, an inventory, rating scales, and suggested readings.

This is an early therapist guide for treating OCD using exposure and response prevention (ERP) which is the "gold standard" evidence-based treatment for OCD. A number of newer therapist guides have been published since this one, including my own book Overcoming obsessive compulsive disorder that included cognitive therapy as well as ERP. These books remain useful as basic clinician guides for treating OCD.About the Author:
