Description

Rewire the brain processes that cause obsessions and compulsions—and take back your life! If you’ve ever wondered why you seem to get trapped in an endless cycle of obsessive, compulsive thoughts, you don’t have to wonder anymore. Grounded in cutting-edge neuroscience and evidence-based cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), Rewire Your OCD Brain will show you how and why your brain gets stuck in a loop of obsessive thinking, uncertainty, and worry; and offers the tools you need to short-circuit this response and get your symptoms under control—for good. Written by clinical psychologist Catherine Pittman and clinical neuropsychologist William Youngs, this groundbreaking book will show how neurological functions in your brain lead to obsessions, compulsions, and anxiety. You’ll also find tons of proven-effective coping strategies to help you manage your worst symptoms—including relaxation, exercise, healthy sleep habits, cognitive restructuring, cognitive defusion, distraction, and mindfulness. The brain is powerful, and the more you work to change the way you respond to obsessive thoughts, the more resilient you’ll become. If you’re ready to rewire the brain processes that lie at the root of your obsessive thoughts, this book has everything you need to get started today.

Advance Praise

“Pittman and Youngs have described the neurophysiology of the brain function of anxiety and obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). Their eloquent explanations of solid treatment options and skill building are user-friendly and can be developed with or without a clinician. The language and concepts are down-to-earth and extremely easy to understand. Highly recommended for therapists or anyone struggling with anxiety or OCD.”
Susan Myers, RN, LCSW, BCD, employed by the Veteran’s Administration Health Care System providing counseling for veterans struggling with anxiety disorders, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and chronic illness

“Pittman and Youngs have managed to teach complex biological and psychological science in an utterly readable, straightforward, respectful voice that is somehow profoundly calming. The chapter on the language of the amygdala, how it learns and how it communicates, is a perfect bridge between understanding how brain circuitry works in OCD and how to use that knowledge to create the new experiences that can change it.”
Sally Winston, PsyD, coauthor of Overcoming Unwanted Intrusive Thoughts and Needing to Know for Sure, and executive director of the Anxiety and Stress Disorders Institute of Maryland
