If you have obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), you might have an irrational fear of being contaminated by germs, or obsessively double-check things. You may even feel like a prisoner, trapped with your intrusive thoughts. And while OCD can have a devastating impact on your life, getting real help can be a challenge.
Combining mindfulness practices with cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), The Mindfulness Workbook for OCD offers practical and accessible tools for managing the unwanted thoughts and compulsive urges that are associated with OCD. With this workbook, you will develop present-moment awareness, learn to challenge your own distorted thinking, and stop treating thoughts as threats and feelings as facts.
This fully revised and updated second edition also includes new meditations, information, and chapters on emotional and mental contamination, existential obsessions, false memories, and more.
If you’re ready to take back your life back from OCD—and start living with more joy in the moment—this workbook has everything you need to get started right away.
“In the second edition, this indispensable resource for obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) sufferers has been updated to integrate new research and information about applying evidence-based treatment to additional OCD symptom subtypes. The authors have retained threads of compassion and humor throughout, inviting the reader to engage with difficult treatment concepts while shrugging off some of the shame around the disorder itself. We are lucky to have these voices in our community.”
—Amy Mariaskin, PhD, clinical psychologist, founder and director of the Nashville OCD and Anxiety Treatment Center, and adjunct professor at Vanderbilt University
“Jon and Tom are two well-known OCD therapists because of their outreach and dedication to the OCD community. The Mindfulness Workbook for OCD has been a resource I have referred many people to over the last five years. I look forward to sharing this new edition with many more people affected by OCD.”
