"There are two very important reasons for this book. First, there is just too much shame about this type of OCD and if this book can decrease that stigma it is a major win for the OCD community. Second, it is disturbing that there are therapists who do not understand this very common presentation of OCD, so I hope that this text will become a standard read for new graduates to help them fully understand the complexities of OCD. Most excellent work Monnica and Chad." -- Patrick B. McGrath, PhD, Executive Director of the AMITA Health Foglia Family Foundation Residential Treatment Center, President, Anxiety Centers of Illinois "This is an exceptionally impressive and comprehensive book! Specific examples of hierarchies, step-by-step treatment descriptions for sexual obsessions are well written. Adding "third wave" treatments- ACT and Association Splitting provides richness to standard ERP/CBT approaches. Sexual obsessions are confusing for most clinicians. This book is among those considered a seminal resource for OCD practitioners and will receive high acclaim." -- Barbara Van Noppen, PhD, LCSW, Vice Chair for Faculty Development, Associate Professor, President, OCD Southern California, an affiliate of the International OCD Foundation "Finally, a book dedicated to understanding sexual obsessions in OCD! Williams and Wetterneck, two leaders in the field of OCD assessment and treatment, have compiled an expert cast of authors who intimately examine how to conceptualize, assess, and treat sexual obsessive-compulsive symptoms. This valuable text belongs on the shelf of any clinician specializing in OCD and related disorders." -- Eric Storch, PhD, Professor and McIngvale Presidential Endowed Chair, Vice Chair & Head, Psychology, Menninger Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, Baylor College of Medicine
