I'd like to share what i've found helpful in controlling symptoms of ocd.
Jeffrey schwartz has a new book out 'You are not your Brain'- which elaborates his ideas about the 4 step programme relabel reframe refocus and revalue, and ive tired to apply the techniques myself. with positive outcomes. It has increased my tolerance of thoughts and impulses and distanace myself. It also uses mindfulness ideas which can help focus on positive change and not getting stuck in unhelpful routines.
Suggest this book could be helpful in a book group or worked through on your own.
The author is well respected and compassionate.
