""Treatment of Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder" is designed to be a guide for the clinician who is engaged in treating obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). The book is written succinctly, yet is comprehensive in its coverage. The underpinnings as well as the development of behavioral treatment for OCD are described and a summary of the literature pertaining to the nature of OCD and its treatment is provided. This volume should prove particularly educational and instructive for those who are non-behaviorally trained and those who are not expert in the psychopathology of OCD.
"Because of its comprehensive nature, this volume will serve well as a handy reference for all clinicians involved in the treatment of OCD. However, it will be particularly useful for those who are less experienced. Steketee went to great length to discuss the nuances of assessment and treatment of OCD, liberally spicing the text with illustrative examples of the syndrome and providing insight into how to conduct a behavioral assessment and how to make behavioral treatment work. Also of particular value to clinicians is the discussion of problems encountered during the course of treatment and factors that militate against a positive outcome. Overall, "Treatment of Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder" will be a valuable asset to clinicians treating OCD and will serve to help disseminate to a wider audience the intricacies of one of behavior therapies' most successful treatment stories." --Sam Turner, Ph.D., Medical University of South Carolina
