The Obsessive Mind offers a well-defined and comprehensive understanding of obsessive-compulsive disorder and its treatment model. Based on the results of current research, the book offers a psychological perspective on the disorder, a complete presentation of useful strategies and techniques that can be implemented in therapy, and work that can be done with family members of OCD patients, all proposed coherently with the theoretical model of the disorder. It also illustrates the pivotal role of moral goals as proximal psychological determinants of the obsessive symptomatology. The Obsessive Mind can be used by new clinicians to become acquainted with the theory and treatment of OCD, as well as more advanced clinicians to improve their OCD treatment skills and learn new interventions and ways to get out of deadlock in treatment and thereby increase efficacy.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"The Obsessive Mind provides a comprehensive guide to understanding important perspectives on the nature and treatment of obsessions and compulsions. Grounded in the latest clinical psychological science, the chapters in this book serve as highly instructive for clinicians, scientists, and students. It occupies a prominent place on my bookshelf!"

Jonathan S. Abramowitz, professor of psychology, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill; editor, Journal of Obsessive-Compulsive and Related Disorders

"In this impressive volume, Mancini and his colleagues integrate rich clinical observations and ingenious empirical research to support the idea that the major driving force of obsessive-compulsive symptoms is fear of guilt. This powerful unifying theory makes an invaluable contribution to understanding and treating OCD, as I can testify from my own teaching and clinical work. I highly recommend this book to all scholars and practitioners who wish to expand their knowledge of OCD and its treatment."

Reuven Dar, PhD, professor and head of Clinical Track, School of Psychological Sciences, Tel Aviv University

"This is a fascinating book on obsessive-compulsive disorder. Thoughtful and well informed, the authors argue that crucial to this disorder is the fear of moral misconduct. The arguments provided are convincing and thought provoking, both clinically and scientifically. The book is a rich, fresh and inspiring source for therapists and researchers alike. A must read for professionals interested in obsessive-compulsive disorder."

Marcel van den Hout, PhD, professor of clinical psychology and experimental psychopathology, Utrecht University, The Netherlands
