Help for OCD
A new documentary is soon to appear, highlighting tumultuous times and events that ultimately led to an impassioned stand by then-AABT President Gerald Davison. How he got to that speech is a story for the ages.
Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, or OCD, is a condition where sufferers have unwelcome thoughts, feelings, and/or behaviors. Sometimes minor, like checking the stove’s burners multiple times; sometimes worrisome, like fear of germs or contagion; and sometimes paralyzing, like worrying you’re going to harm babies. Luckily, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, or CBT, has been successfully used to treat those with OCD. CBT also teaches patients how to alter their behaviors and confront their thoughts. These kinds of behaviors are what is causing them to experience feelings of anxiety. This article also includes some videos with a wealth of useful information that is easily digested. It is important to remember that OCD comes in myriad forms, and any that interferes with functioning is worth looking at.
