Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder: Theory, Research, and Treatment Paperback – October 31, 2001
"This excellent edited volume provides a state-of-the-art review of OCD and its multifaceted complexity....a stellar list of contributors presents an up-to-date summary of knowledge and research findings....while there are other recent books on OCD, this book constitutes an extremely rich and up-to-date resource....Because of its many excellent chapters, the volume would certainly be of interest to a wide readership. This would include researchers, clinicians, and graduate students who seek to learn more about the opulent complexity of the disorder." --Journal of Cognitive Psychotherapy
"...probably the most comprehensive and balanced survey of this illness available....The first two parts offer an outstanding appraisal of the state of the art of the field and how these insights translate into the clinical approach." --Psychotherapy and Psychosomatics
"...outstandingly good; it is both practical and thought-provoking and, one suspects, destined to become a classic of its kind." --American Journal of Psychiatry
"Containing timely contributions from 41 distinguished clinicians and researchers, this volume provides a comprehensive, up-to-date overview of OCD." --Digest of Neurology and Psychiatry
"A highly qualified group of editors combined to produce a state-of-the-art text on obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD). They assembled an international representation of expert contributors but managed to create a volume that reads as if it were written by one person....Case histories, chapter references, and tables complete a scholarly presentation of an important topic. A valuable and complete text on the subject, this is a worthy acquisition for both undergraduate and graduate level psychology collections." --Choice
"...comprehensive and balanced....This volume is well organized and easy to follow, and can be recommended to clinicians, researchers, and students." --Readings
"The most extensive, up-to-date information available on OCD and related disorders. Not since the 1980 publication of Rachman and Hodgson's classic Obsessions and Compulsions have we seen such an encyclopedic resource. Chapter authors represent leaders in the field, and their diverse presentations have been skillfully integrated by the editors. Since the spectrum of obsessive-compulsive disorders are prevalent and incapacitating, everyone coming into contact with this clinical population should be familiar with the contents of this book." --David H. Barlow, PhD, Professor and Director, Center for Anxiety and Related Disorders at Boston University
"This book provides a balanced, broad perspective, complemented by masterful in-depth reviews and analyses of the vast OCD literature. Written by a 'who's who' of distinguished clinicians and researchers, the volume radiates wisdom that comes only from long experience and careful thought." --John H. Greist, MD, Distinguished Senior Scientist, Dean Foundation, and Clinical Professor of Psychiatry, University of Wisconsin Medical School
"This wonderful new work on OCD is consistently thorough, well written, and thoughtful. Covering a comprehensive range of topics, chapters present useful overviews, reanalyze key data and concepts, and reach stimulating new conclusions. Significantly, the book builds from chapter to chapter: New insights into cognitive processing, for example, are further elaborated in the sections on neuroimaging and brain chemistry. A 'must read' for clinicians and researchers in the field." --Michael R. Liebowitz, MD, Professor of Clinical Psychiatry at Columbia University and Director of the Anxiety Disorders Clinic at The New York State Psychiatric Institute
"At last, a comprehensive scrutiny of theoretical, research, and treatment approaches to one of the most difficult problems encountered in clinical practice. Authored by a group of distinguished authorities, this volume addresses every aspect of OCD: biological, psychological, psychotherapeutic, and psychopharmacological. This highly readable book is a 'must' for psychotherapists, psychopharmacologists, and researchers attempting to unravel this disorder." --Aaron T. Beck, MD, President of The Beck Institute for Cognitive Therapy and University Professor Emeritus, University of Pennsylvania
"Written by leaders in the field of OCD research and practice, this volume provides a comprehensive, multidisciplinary overview of research into the disorder. Impressive for the breadth and depth of its coverage, this is an outstanding sourcebook for researchers, clinical psychologists, psychiatrists, and graduate students." --Paul M.G. Emmelkamp, PhD, Department of Psychology, University of Amsterdam, The Netherlands
