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.

"It is now well documented that cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) is the most effective treatment for OCD, and Abramowitz is one of our most distinguished researcher-clinicians in the field. This first-rate book presents CBT principles and techniques in a self-help format that will be invaluable to OCD patients. Following the steps outlined here can help readers experience a significant decrease in their symptoms. Abramowitz's positive and motivating style will serve patients well; clinicians and researchers also will find this book a 'must read'." -- Michael A. Jenike, MD, Department of Psychiatry, Harvard Medical School
