New book about OCD

Coping with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder

Professor Gournay, Professor Rogers and Rachel Piper have collaborated on a new book; “Coping with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder” that provides clear advice and an evidence based self-help programme.

The book suggests ways of dealing with obsessive urges and rituals, and preventing and coping with setbacks. It also looks at OCD in children and young people, and co-existing conditions such as body dysmorphic disorder (BDD), morbid jealousy, depression, social anxiety, substance abuse, phobias, and tics.

That is why over the last few years, OCD Action has been working with the network of local support groups across the country to help them grow and develop so that they can provide the best possible help.
