Treatment for patients with obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) has dramatically improved with the innovative use of cognitive-behavioral therapies. Drs. McGinn and Sanderson have developed a comprehensive method of treatment that combines psychoeducational and cognitive restructuring with traditional exposure and response prevention techniques. A detailed session-by-session guide is presented to help clinicians assess and treat OCD with this unique blend of therapies. Using a composite case example, the authors demonstrate exactly how to implement various strategies from the initial interview to the conclusion of treatment.
“Since many practitioners seek out books on cognitive and behavioral therapy to fill a gap in their training, there is clearly a need for ‘how-to’ treatment manuals. With this book, Drs. McGinn and Sanderson have met that need with utmost skill and mastery. They have succeeded admirably in their goal to educate and train clinicians in the cognitive-behavioral treatment of obsessive-compulsive disorder.” — Aaron T. Beck, M.D. Professor of Psychiatry, University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine
