Confronting OCD

There’s a great review of a scientific paper that explains the mechanism by which therapists help those suffering from OCD confront it and, one hopes, reduce its hold. They explain “exposure” and how it works, which is requiring the person to confront precisely what he, or she, has been working so hard to avoid. Exposure is done in a controlled way, so, for instance, a person with a snake phobia isn’t thrown, a la Indiana Jones, into a pit of pythons.
