Overview

What exactly is OCD, how can you recognise the symptoms and how can CBT help you to overcome it? Breaking Free from OCD is a step-by-step guide to coping with OCD for young people and their families.

Young people living with OCD experience obessions or compulsions that are distressing and interfere with their social lives, relationships, education and future careers. Written by leading experts on OCD, this book introduces cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), which is a proven method for helping those with OCD. It shows how CBT works by offering teenagers a structured plan of treatment which can be read alone, or with a parent, counsellor or mental health worker, and is illustrated with cartoons, case studies and worksheets throughout. This guide is an invaluable resource for young people wanting to get control of their lives again.
