A fear of contamination drives the most common manifestation of obsessive compulsive disorders(OCD), compulsive washing. OCD is a distressing anxiety disorder that affects 1-2 percent of the population and can be disabling. Intense and complex forms of the disorder benefit from advanced analyses of contamination and its treatment. This book, part of a series on modern psychological treatments published by OUP, provides a detailed account of the nature and causes of the various forms of a fear of contamination and their consequences. Methods of treatment are described and fully illustrated by case histories. The inclusion of original analyses and explanations of a newly recognised form of the fear, mental contamination, is an important feature of the book and will enable therapists to expand their ability to assess and treat the abnormal fears of contamination. Written by clinicians with extensive experience, this volume is valuable for all clinical psychologists and psychotherapists with an interest in OCD

MEDIA REVIEWS
The definitive guide to mental contamination. The author's careful analysis clarifies this puzzling condition and opens the avenue for a new treatment approach. Thoroughly recommended for clinicians and researchers alike * Professor David M. Clark, Psychology Department, Oxford University, UK, and editor of Cognitive Behaviour Therapy for Psychiatric Problems: A practical guide (1989) and Science and Practice of Cognitive Behaviour Therapu (1996) *
I find mental contamination to be of the most interesting, yet least understood manifestations of OCD. This book - written by THE leading experts on the topic - will provide you with a clear understanding of mental contamination, along with guidance for implementing effective CBT strategies. The many clinical case examples and practical vignettes, along with a "Toolkit" of highly useful materials for use in therapy, make this an essential resource for any clinician and student working with OCD patients. * Jonathan S. Abramowitz, Professor and Associate Chair of Psychology, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, USA *
The concept of mental contamination, first introduced by Rachman and colleagues, represents one of the most significant developments in our understanding of compulsive cleaning in decades. Now this research team has produced the first authoritative, detailed treatment manual for mental contamination. It is rich in clinical insights and case illustrations, informative in its detailed instructions on assessment, case formulation and treatment, and well-grounded in empirical research. It is packed with clinical resource materials for the practitioner, offering a new cognitive-behavioral approach to contamination fear. This how-to book is "vintage Rachman" and a must read for any student. researcher or clinician interested in the latest treatment innovations for OCD. This book will transform how you understand and treat contamination OCD. * David A. Clark, Professor of Psychology, University of New Brunswick, Canada *
