Using this book with a client with OCD and another with Body Dysmorphic Disorder. It's very thorough.

This book may or may not help you. It does little to give practical tools. I found that it created more issues for me than it helped with. Better books would be Brain Lock, and Stop Obsessing. The writers of this manual seem to have left out some key elements of OCD. Good luck!

What a great tool for treating OCD. It gives clear, logical steps for dealing with the dysfunction. I especially liked the recent inclusion of a chapter regarding mindfulness. It will help me as a therapist deal thoughtfully and thoroughly with OCD.
