Stand up to your OCD! The ACT Workbook for OCD combines evidence-based acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) with exposure and response prevention (ERP) for the most up-to-date, effective treatment for obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD).
If you are one of the millions of people who suffer from OCD, you may experience obsessive, intrusive, or even disturbing thoughts. You may engage in compulsive or ritualistic behaviours, such as checking to make sure you have locked the front door, or endlessly washing your hands for fear of germs or contamination. And you may be tempted to give up if treatment just does not work for you.
Whether you have just received a diagnosis, or have suffered for years, this workbook can help. Using the powerful and proven-effective treatments in this guide, you will learn what type of OCD you suffer from (such as harm OCD), how to identify the underlying mechanisms of your OCD, move through triggering incidents while staying present and connected to your values, be more aware and flexible, tolerate uncertainty, and commit to behaviours that ultimately allow you to lead a full, rewarding life.
Once you realise what really matters to you, you will find the motivation needed to start on the path to psychological well-being.
If you are ready to be courageous, take a risk, and stand up to your OCD symptoms, this workbook can help guide you, every step of the way.
