This volume opens with an overview of the diagnosis and assessment of OCD in adults and delineates an evidence-based conceptual framework for understanding the development, maintenance, and treatment of obsessions and compulsions. The core of the book that follows is a highly practical treatment manual, based on decades of scientific research and clinical refinement, packed with helpful clinical pearls, therapist-patient dialogues, illustrative case vignettes, sample forms and handouts. State-of-the-art strategies for enhancing exposure therapy using inhibitory learning, ACT, and couples-based approaches are described. Readers are also equipped with skills for tailoring treatment to patients with different types of OCD symptoms (e.g., contamination, unacceptable thoughts, challenging presentations such as mental rituals) and for addressing common obstacles to treatment. The book is an essential resource for anyone providing services for individuals with anxiety disorders.

Reviews

This volume in the Advances in Psychotherapy series is a thorough guide to the effective diagnosis and empirically supported treatment for obsessive-compulsive disorder. The authors review the DSM-5 and ICD-10 diagnostic criteria, current theories and models, prevalence rates, and comorbidity, and provide a well-thought out examination of current treatments.; "All of the books in this series are written for a wide range of mental health professionals, but psychologists and psychiatrists will benefit the most from the wealth of knowledge in this volume. Another wonderful feature of these books is their usefulness across clinical, research, and academic settings."; Nicholas Greco IV, MS, BCETS, CATSM(Columbia College of Missouri), in DOODY'S BOOK REVIEW SERVICE, 2015;; "The authors have done a tremendous service to the profession and clinicians of all levels with this book. The research related to the conceptualization and treatment of OCD has burgeoned in recent years, and this book brings to providers a single, brief, highly approachable resource that will greatly facilitate the delivery of therapy to clients. Especially unique are the clinical vignettes that link conceptualization of this complex disorder to clinical presentations that are common but less well known, such as harming obsessions and unacceptable thoughts. This book is a 'must-read' for clinicians who expect to treat individuals with OCD."; Dean McKay, PhD, ABPP, President (2013-2014), Association for Behavioral and Cognitive Therapies; Professor, Fordham University, Bronx, NY;; "From the esteemed University of North Carolina Anxiety and Stress Disorders Clinic comes this clinician's guide to treatment of OCD. Going well beyond outlining the evidencebased treatment protocols, the authors sort through the daunting number of permutations of OCD to guide the reader from assessment tools through the best responses to nonadherence and misuse of exposure techniques as anxiety control strategies."; Reid Wilson, PhD, coauthor, Stop Obsessing! Overcoming Your Obsessions and Compulsions;; "Finally, an updated, concise text that covers all the 'OCD bases' from conceptualization to psychological treatment, including recent clinical advances such as ACT and inhibitory learning. Anyone interested in treating OCD needs to use this book as their guiding resource."; Bradley Riemann, PhD, Clinical Director, OCD Center and CBT Services, Rogers Memorial Hospital, Oconomowoc, WI
