Top Customer Reviews
The book begins with several chapters on mindfulness, followed by a very useful chapter entitled "Acceptance, Assessment, Action", then there are nine chapters on applying their particular techniques to specific kinds of OCD, and finally a few chapters at the end on maintaining your progress and preventing relapse. I highly recommend this book to anybody who is suffering from any form of OCD, and, in fact, anyone suffering from other types of anxiety as well as I believe the
That is what you will find in this book. It is easy to digest, separated into three distinct parts: An introduction to mindfulness, a section of how your techniques apply to the different faces of OCD (harm-O, sexual orientation OCD, POCD, and many others), and a section on how the disorder affects your life and how you can communicate this to others.
The author understands you; no joke. Everything is detailed down to how and why it will help you out. They know it’s hard. They know exactly what you’re thinking, what you may be reluctant to do, what you’re afraid of. You are prompted to write your thoughts, fears, and little mindset-changing sentences all throughout the workbook. You might not feel comfortable, but they know. You feel understood, and that’s the important thing.
The book includes a collection of online and further book resources alongside their main features and how they can help you build upon what you have learned.
I cannot recommend this enough.
As other reviewers have pointed out, mindfulness techniques that help you observe rather than react to OCD thoughts are becoming an important component in recovery. I feel an equally important point is the book's emphasis on starting with gradual steps toward exposure. Classic exposure and response therapy (or ERP) was been described by at least one person who supports it as "the cruelest form of therapy," and it reports a high dropout rate in the literature - conversely Hershfield's gentle, positive and hopeful approach, undoubtedly borne of his own perspective as a recovering sufferer, will help open the doors of treatment for many more people. I highly recommend this book for anyone who suffers from OCD.
