Pure ‘O’ OCD and Psychotherapy (2)

Abstract – Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD) is a condition in which people feel the need to check things repeatedly, perform certain routines repeatedly (‘rituals’), or have certain thoughts repeatedly. People are unable to control either the thoughts or the activities for any longer periods of time. Suppressing the behavior or thoughts often causes intense feelings of anxiety, tension, nervousness and fear. OCD is quite common, and it is mostly treated with a combination of psychotherapy and medication. There is some discussion as to whether categorizations of OCD into heterogeneous forms, including a pure obsessive form, make sense. However, there are common themes and mechanisms underlying any form of OCD.
