Description
 
Ian Osborn (au). Osborn, a specialist in OCD, has himself suffered from OCD. His experiences imbue this book with clarity & understanding. Discusses the various forms that OCD takes & -- using the most common focuses of obsession -- presents detailed cases whose objects are filth, harm, lust, & blasphemy. Explains how the disorder is currently diagnosed, & how it differs from addiction, worrying, & preoccupation. Summarizes the findings in the areas of brain biology, neuroimaging, & genetics that show OCD to be a chemical disorder of the brain. Contrasts OCD with other “OCD spectrum disorders” such as anorexia nervosa & hairpulling. Provides a historical overview that traces the development over the centuries of both behavior therapy & medications.
