Tens of thousands of readers are living freer, happier lives thanks to the clinically proven strategies in this book, now thoroughly updated based on the latest science. Jonathan S. Abramowitz helps OCD sufferers use the powerful techniques of cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT)--the most effective treatment for the disorder--to achieve lasting recovery. Examples and stories of people with a wide range of obsessional thoughts and compulsive behaviors illustrate the 10 steps of the program and assure readers they are not alone. Numerous worksheets and other practical tools can be downloaded and printed for repeated use. The second edition is revised throughout with cutting-edge strategies for coping with unwanted thoughts that can't be eliminated completely, plus new learning techniques drawn from brain research.

“This book was the best tool we had when our adolescent son was fighting his OCD. We quickly realized OCD does not just happen to the individual, but affects the entire family. We needed to learn and follow an evidence-based treatment plan. Dr. Abromowitz outlines each step in a clear, concise way. The chapter on 'Putting It All Together' was particularly helpful. Dr. Abramowitz helps you create a 'battle plan' that is the key to winning the war.”
