Do you know about the Doomsayer? He's the guy dressed in rags with a cardboard sign that reads, "The End Is Near!" Having OCD is a lot like having this character inside your head. He's with you all the time; he knows your deepest fears, and he's not afraid to use them. You try to brush him off at first, but he's so sure of himself, so persistent that you find yourself taking his proclamations to heart. And you worry--a lot. After a while, you start engaging in little rituals to keep the Doomsayer at bay--but you get little relief. What can you do? A lot, it turns out. This book offers a simple and engaging program that can get anyone with mild to moderate OCD started on the road to recovery, using safe and gradual exposure to distressing thoughts and situations, mindfulness practice, and techniques to restructure thinking.--From publisher description.
