“This book is exceptional in that it has practical benefits for both obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) sufferers and for clinicians. For sufferers, it serves as a self-help treatment guide for understanding the disorder and using proven treatment techniques to bring about symptom reduction. For clinicians, it serves as a treatment manual that can assist in making the initial diagnosis, identifying the particular OCD subtype, and developing a successful treatment plan.”
—Paul R. Munford, Ph.D., director of the intensive outpatient treatment program at the Cognitive Behavior Therapy Center for OCD and Anxiety in San Rafael, CA, author of Overcoming Compulsive Washing
“A wealth of information and real help for people with OCD and their families! The OCD Workbook is a great resource that is practical and easy to understand, with the latest updates and effective step-by-step strategies.”
—Aureen Pinto Wagner, Ph.D., author of Up and Down the Worry Hill: A Children’s Book About OCD, What to Do When Your Child Has OCD, and Treatment of OCD in Children and Adolescents
“While there are many self-help books for OCD sufferers, there are few that are of the same caliber, in terms of completeness and usefulness, as Hyman and Pedrick’s The OCD Workbook. This is a first-rate resource for those seeking to recover their lives from this torturous disorder.”
—Fred Penzel, Ph.D., licensed psychologist and executive director of Western Suffolk Psychological Services in Huntington, NY, and author of Obsessive-Compulsive Disorders
“Bruce Hyman and Cherry Pedrick’s updated and expanded version of their classic, The OCD Workbook, is one of the best self-help books on OCD. Many sections have been expanded and new ones added. Readers will find up-to-date information on their own particular OCD concerns and how to conquer them.”
—Bruce Mansbridge, Ph.D., author of The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Conquering Obsessive-Compulsive Behavior and clinical assistant professor of psychology at the University of Texas, Austin

—Fugen Neziroglu, Ph.D., board-certified behavior and cognitive therapist, director of the Bio-Behavioral Institute in Great Neck, NY, and author of Body Dysmorphic Disorder
“This is an excellently organized, self-directed program to assist sufferers of OCD. The examples of cognitive behavioral treatment components for adults and children with OCD are very comprehensive. Parents and family will find support and assistance in breaking the patterns of enabling, and therapists will be able to implement behavioral assignments that will decrease OCD suffering.”
—Blanche Freund, adjunct professor of psychology and psychiatry at the University of Miami School of Medicine
“There has long been a need for a workbook that puts concrete instructions for doing therapy directly into the hands of people with OCD and their families. Hyman and Pedrick have admirably filled that need in this book. The OCD Workbook provides critically important practical information on how to overcome a wide variety of OCD symptoms.”
—Jeffrey M. Schwartz, MD, research professor of psychology at the University of California, Los Angeles, and author of Brain Lock and The Mind and the Brain
“This book offers a clear explanation of the modern treatment of OCD. I personally expect to recommend it to many of my OCD patients. It contains clear, step-by-step procedures for exposure and ritual prevention that are fundamental parts of what we know to be the most powerful treatment for OCD. In addition, I was pleased to find step-by-step procedures and examples of how to use cutting-edge cognitive techniques. The book offers clear suggestions for working with a variety of forms of OCD, including scrupulosity, hit and run, and hoarding problems. This book should be helpful to people who need to do self-directed treatment as well as to therapists who can use the examples and steps to treat OCD effectively.”
—James M. Claiborn, Ph.D., ABPP, psychologist and member of the Scientific Advisory Board of the Obsessive-Compulsive Foundation
“More than just a workbook, this work by Hyman and Pedrick defines and demystifies obsessive-compulsive disorder. In addition, it offers therapists and patients a highly specific and useful treatment program. The OCD Workbook should be an important addition to your collection of OCD treatment literature.”
—Robert H. Ackerman, MSW, clinical assistant professor in the Department of Psychiatry at the State University of New York, Health Science Center at Brooklyn

The notion that only cognitive behavior therapy, and not traditional psychotherapy, can treat OCD has finally reached the mainstream. I attribute a 75% improvement with my OCD (while at the same time decreasing my medication by 75%)from Dr. Hyman's novel approach. His book is truly a blessing and SHOULD BE READ BY ANY INDIVIDUAL OR FAMILY MEMBER OF AN INDIVIDUAL fighting this insidious disease.
