"Historically, psychologists have considered patients with obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) challenging to treat, with significant numbers failing to benefit from treatment. The heterogeneity of the population and the complexity of the disorder have been contributing factors. However, cognitive-behavioral treatments are showing great promise, particularly when delivered with pharmacotherapy and tailored to the unique characteristics of each OCD subtype. The chapters in this volume, written by prominent specialists, provide practical, step-by-step descriptions of psychological approaches to treating OCD. After explaining the general, underlying features of the disorder, contributors describe evidence-based behavioral and cognitive approaches, such as exposure and ritual prevention and cognitive restructuring. They also discuss how to apply these strategies with specific presentations of OCD, including fears of contamination; doubting and checking; incompleteness concerns; religious, sexual, and aggressive obsessions; and compulsive hoarding. Experienced practitioners will appreciate the guidance on not only dealing with treatment resistance and comorbidity but also treating OCD in special populations. All readers will find in this book a practical and insightful resource for helping individuals with this troubling disorder"--Jacket. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2007 APA, all rights reserved)
