One of our favorite topics to write about is obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD). OCD presents in a fascinating variety of symptoms and the literature on treatment is extensive. So, when we were contacted by New Harbinger Publications to review a new book on OCD for teens we were delighted. Free From OCD: A Workbook for Teens with Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder by Timothy A. Sisemore, Ph.D. has been released this month. It’s worth a look.
The book contains 40 activities that are designed to help the teen reader overcome OCD. These activities are based on cognitive-behavioral principles that have been found to be useful in the treatment of a variety of disorders, including OCD. Each activity begins with a case example followed by written exercises for readers to complete.
