Synopsis

If you have obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), you may suffer from obsessive thoughts, fears, and anxiety. You know, more than anyone, how debilitating this condition can be. But you may also be reluctant to start treatment due to fear, stigma, and misconceptions regarding therap -particularly exposure and response prevention (ERP) therapy. You may think of a number of reasons not to go, or to drop out, but if you are committed to getting better, you need to take that important step toward healing.



ERP is a proven-effective treatment that can help people with OCD break free from the constraints of their disorder; however, many people have misconceptions about what this treatment entails. In Daring to Challenge OCD, anxiety specialist Joan Davidson, PhD, gives a thorough overview of ERP, what to expect during treatment, and offers gentle guidance to help you finally overcome the common fears and anxiety that can stand in the way of getting the help you need.



If you are considering treatment, you may ask yourself, What will my therapist expect me to do? Will treatment be too difficult for me to handle? Will I be asked to do things that put me at risk? This book will demystify treatment for OCD so that you can stop being afraid, and start changing your life. And if you are a therapist dealing with treatment resistance in your clients, this book makes for wonderful suggested reading to help get them back into therapy.
