Tormenting Thoughts and Secret Rituals : The Hidden Epidemic of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder by Ian OsbornTormenting Thoughts and Secret Rituals : The Hidden Epidemic of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder      by Ian Osborn "I am a licensed psychologist and a patient with obsessive compulsive symptoms. For over five years I have voraciously consumed the available literature to get help for myself and my clients. This book is a must have. Nothing I have read has been better.
Dr. Osborn's magic is in letting himself shine through as a fellow sufferer who is a deeply compassionate practitioner. His case studies show many of the subtle faces of OCD and give us insight into the suffering this disorder can bring.
A real highlight of the book is when he lets his group therapy patients speak to us through their ten strategies for coping with OCD.
This is a six star book."

Getting Control : Overcoming Your Obsessions and Compulsions by Lee Baer Ph.D.Getting Control : Overcoming Your Obsessions and Compulsions      by Lee Baer Ph.D. "I must admit I was skeptical when I started reading Dr. Baers revised edition of Getting Control. How can a book like this possibly get better? But it truly does. He has a lot more NEW information on Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD).
As a sufferer of OCD, the first book was a life saver. This book gave me even more useful information and self help skills. I especially liked the new theory on thought stopping. He covers all the new medications approved for OCD. And other that are not approved but are showing promise. He covers the anxiety that comes with OCD and how to control it. There is more real life patient stories. That I could identify with. He even includes his e-mail address in case you would like to contact him! Again, Dr. Baur's true concern and compassion for his patients suffering shines through. This is a truly wonderful and extremely helpful book!
