Are you living or working with someone who has Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)? Perhaps it's your partner, or child; a parent, close friend of work colleague? Diagnosed as often as diabetes, the condition can lead both sufferers and those around them to feel isolated. But you are not alone. This practical guide enables families, carers and friends to provide invaluable support for those with OCD. It aims to inform those living alongside OCD about the condition and to provide clear and compassionate strategies for them. With a new understanding, readers will also be able to cope better with OCD manifestations, and the commonly experienced emotions such as bewilderment, frustration and sadness will gradually disappear. This book includes interviews with those at the rock-face: relatives, friends and colleagues of those with OCD. The latest medical advances and effective treatments, such as CBT, are explored, with insight from mental health professionals. Helen Poskitt has written widely on the subject of OCD for OCD Action, contributed a chapter on it for Taking control of OCD, and has published a novel, "Rising to the Surface" (Chipmunka).She has also spoken on the subject at the OCD Action Conference.
