Review by Allama
This book is an invaluable resource those with Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, as well as for our family and friends. It explains the disorder in very clear and detailed terms that are easy to understand but aren't "dumbed down". If you have ever struggled to explain the workings of your mind to someone else (or even yourself), The OCD Workbook is almost certain to help! It also includes various exercises for the OCD sufferer that are quite insightful and provides information about multiple treatment options.In short, I recommend this book very highly to anyone who has OCD and to anyone who wants to better understand and care for someone they know who has it.
