Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is one of the top five mental health complaints today. Unwanted, repetitive thoughts and actions disrupt millions of lives and cause tremendous suffering and distress. But OCD can be beat-and there's no more trusted authority than Dr. Jonathan Abramowitz to show how. Structured to mirror the steps of cognitive-behavioral therapy, the most effective treatment for the disorder, this engaging workbook is packed with self-assessment and planning tools; carefully sequenced exercises; and informative examples that sufferers will relate to. By learning specific strategies for changing the thoughts, feelings, and behaviors that keep OCD alive, readers grappling with any type of obsessions and compulsions can find significant, lasting relief.

Dr. Abramowitz, a world renowned expert, coaches you through a program that can free you from your struggle with obsessions and compulsions. He doesn't soft-pedal the work required-you're up against a powerful challenger. But his warm and reassuring voice, coupled with a comprehensive, scientifically proven, step-by-step format, will keep you supported and motivated."
-Reid Wilson, PhD, author of Don't Panic
