Description

An OCD book just for you—full of powerful tools and engaging illustrations to help you live the life you want to live, instead of being controlled by OCD.

Do you have thoughts that seem loud? Do your worries spiral out of control and then suck you in? Do intrusive thoughts show up and make you scared of doing certain things—or not doing things—a certain way? Do you ever get a feeling like something bad might happen? Does this loud stuff make you feel alone, or worse—crazy? First, you aren’t alone—even if it sometimes feels that way. And second, you are not crazy. But you might be struggling with obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). And while OCD can be difficult, you don’t have to let it have power over you. Instead, you can live a life full of meaning, great relationships and joy with the help of this book.

In Stuff That’s Loud, you’ll learn exposure and response prevention (ERP), and ideas from acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) to help you break free from loud, spiralling OCD thoughts and behaviors:

You’ll learn to be curious about the world around you
You’ll use willingness to step forward boldly  
Flexibility skills to practice everywhere, everywhen 
So that you can live a life you give a $#@! about 


Life doesn’t have to stay stuck any longer!

An OCD book just for you—full of powerful tools and engaging illustrations to help you live the life you want to live, instead of being controlled by OCD.

Advance Praise

“Sedley and Coyne are two experts who have written a terrific guide for teens with obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). They walk the reader through how to understand obsessions and compulsions, and how to use exposure and response prevention (ERP) and acceptance-based strategies to better manage these unpleasant experiences. What’s unique about this book is how well the authors speak to their young readers; engaging them with personal accounts of OCD and abundant illustrations. If your teen with OCD is having difficulty engaging with treatment, this is the book for them!”
Jonathan Abramowitz, PhD, professor in the department of psychology at The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and author of Getting Over OCD 

Stuff That’s Loud is a book I wish teen me had. It’s written in a comforting and encouraging way by clinicians that get OCD, and its treatment. But more than this, it’s a book about exploration and invention of the life you want to live. If you are a teen with this book in your hands, I hope it helps you work through OCD and create the life you want, filled with all the fun, meaning, and adventure possible.”
Stuart Ralph, author of The OCD Stories
