Obsessive-compulsive disorder can be a very disabling and distressing problem. Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) has been shown to be very effective in helping people to overcome OCD. However, OCD is a highly heterogeneous disorder, often complicated by contextual factors, and therapists are often left wondering how to apply their knowledge of treatment to the particular problems as they face them in clinical practice. This book provides the reader with an understanding of the background to and principles of using CBT for OCD in a clear practical 'how to' style. It also elucidates the particular challenges and solutions in applying CBT for OCD using illustrative case material and guidance on formulation-driven intervention. The book also addresses commonly occurring complexities in the treatment of OCD, for example working with comorbidity, perfectionism, shame and family involvement in symptoms. Throughout the book, the authors provide tips on receiving and giving supervision to trouble-shoot commonly encountered problems, resulting in a guide that can help clinicians at all levels of experience.

A Cognitive Approach to Treating Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder Based on research funded by the National Institute of Mental Health, this manual presents for the first time a purely cognitive approach to treating obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). This approach avoids the highly distressing exposure component of exposure and response prevention therapy (ERP) that is commonly used to treat the symptoms of OCD. Not only does this cognitive therapy (CT) approach open up the option of psychotherapy to those OCD sufferers who resist exposure-based therapy, it also holds great promise for treating OCD sufferers with mental rituals as well as those who struggle concurrently with depression, anxiety, and other symptoms. The strategies described in this book focus intensively on the intrusive thoughts that can trigger negative beliefs and drive compulsive behaviors. The manual begins with a brief review of current facts about OCD. Then it describes how cognitive therapy can be applied to OCD. The several treatment modules that follow outline a brief three-to-four session approach therapists can use to help clients make real progress on their OCD beliefs and behavioral symptoms. Each module is complemented by a series of client worksheets and handouts. This purely cognitive approach to OCD offers a number of benefits including: CT avoids the discomfort of prolonged exposure and response prevention (ERP) The therapy can be conducted entirely in the therapist's office CT is especially useful for patients with mental rituals and neutralizing strategies The treatment is based on NIMH-funded research and is empirically supported

Although Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) has a well elaborated theoretical background and documented standard therapeutic process, new specific theoretical formulations and genuine techniques seem to continually appear. These new treatment developments in CBT constitute the heart of this book. Leading researchers and clinicians, who are also well established experts in the application of CBT present the extent of their experience, as well as appropriate and state-of-the-art treatment techniques for a variety of specific disorders: * Management of Major Depression, suicidal behaviour and Bipolar Disorder. * Treatment of Anxiety Disorders such as Panic Disorder, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, and Generalized Anxiety Disorder. * Application of CBT to Eating Disorder and Personality Disorders, especially Borderline Personality Disorder. * Implementation of CBT with specific populations such as couples and families, children and adolescents. The book focuses on clinical practice and treatment techniques, but avoids a step-by-step approach. Instead it encourages flexibility and integrativity in order to help the practicing clinician become more competent and efficient in applying CBT. Well-known contributors reveal a variety of treatment styles, and case examples and treatment transcripts are used to show how theoretical innovations integrate with the practice of CBT.
