Clinical Handbook of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder and Related Problems Book Excerpt:

Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is a complex set of thoughts and behaviors that can vary greatly from person to person and can be related to and complicated by a wide range of other disorders. Clinicians are confronted with the challenge of accurately classifying its many variants and developing effective, systematic treatments for them. Some believe that OCD and related problems should be treated as subtypes of one condition; others argue that OCD is composed of a spectrum of many similar conditions that should be treated individually. In this handbook, Jonathan S. Abramowitz, Dean McKay, and Steven Taylor present an approach to diagnosis and treatment that considers subtype and spectrum concepts. They examine specific presentations of OCD—the symptoms—that are often seen in practice as well as the many disorders that may fall within the OCD spectrum. For each symptom and putative spectrum condition, they discuss empirical support, theories of etiology, and treatment issues. The volume covers cognitive-behavioral and biological factors, as well as the latest approaches to psychological and pharmacologic therapy, including complicating factors in treatment. In concluding chapters, the authors critically address the current literature on proposed subtype and spectrum disorders, consider the clinical implications of the literature, and map out a comprehensive, integrated approach for understanding OCD and related conditions. The only work on OCD that covers treatment options for specific symptoms and the full spectrum of related disorders, this handbook is a must-have for clinicians who are dedicated to improving the lives of patients with these challenging mental conditions.

Understanding and Treating Obsessive Compulsive Disorder Book Excerpt:

Among the most prevalent and personally devastating psychological disorders the development of a cognitive approach to obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) has transformed our understanding and treatment of it. In this highly practical and accessible book, Jonathan Abramowitz presents a model of OCD grounded in the most up-to-date research that incorporates both cognitive and behavioral processes. He then offers a step-by-step guide to psychological treatment that integrates psychoeducation, cognitive techniques, and behavioral therapy (exposure and response prevention). Unlike other manuals for the treatment of OCD, this book teaches the reader how to tailor the choice of techniques and delivery modes for individuals presenting with a wide range of specific OCD symptoms, such as contamination fears and cleaning rituals, fears of harm and compulsive checking, symmetry and ordering, and severe obsessions with mental rituals. The techniques are illustrated with numerous case examples; clinical forms and handouts are provided for use with patients. A final chapter suggests strategies for overcoming common obstacles in treatment.

Obsessive compulsive Disorder and Its Spectrum Book Excerpt:

Obsessive-compulsive spectrum disorders (OCSDs) are conditions that, while not meeting diagnostic criteria for obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), share many similar symptoms. The past decade has seen a tremendous growth in knowledge on the nature, treatment, assessment, and basic science of OCSDs. This book reviews the latest research on OCD and OCSDs and provides evidence-based guidance for assessment and treatment. Several different conditions are covered, including hoarding disorder; body dysmorphic disorder; hair pulling, skin picking, and other body-focused repetitive behaviours; Tourette disorder and tics; hypochondriasis; as well as OCD. Importantly, the book takes a life-span perspective, with specific attention given to the unique aspects of OCSDs across different age groups. Both psychological and pharmacological treatments are reviewed, as well as comorbidities and other complications. Two special chapters review the neurobiological and behavioural genetic support for the obsessive-compulsive spectrum. By bridging the psychological and biomedical perspectives on OCSDs, this book will appeal to a broad range of clinicians and researchers operating within this new diagnostic framework.
