OCD is often trivialized as an issue with cleanliness, but for sufferers and those who live with them and/or care for them, it can be life changing, keeping them the slaves of their anxieties. The most common question asked by parents, partners and friends of OCD sufferers is `What can I do?' Lynn Crilly, based on successful support of her own daughter and other sufferers, finally provides some positive, practical answers. Illustrated with observations and anecdotes from carers and sufferers themselves, Hope with OCD explains the many varieties of OCD, how to spot them, the possible causes and drivers and gives a balanced guide to available treatments - both mainstream and `alternative' - in the context of what has worked in her experience. She gives hope for breaking free to a full, obsession-free life.
