Contemporary Issues in TreatmenteBook - 2000
Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is now recognized to be a serious and chronic illness that affects more than 2% of the population. Although the last decade has witnessed many advances on both the pharmacological and the behavioral fronts, fewer than 50% of cases benefit significantly from currently available treatments. In this volume, leading authorities offer a comprehensive, cutting-edge overview of etiology, diagnosis, assessment of OCD, and the latest approaches to treatment. A special focus is treatment-resistant cases that comprise over half the total. Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder: Contemporary Issues in Treatment will be an indispensable resource for all professionals who seek better solutions to the often seemingly intractable problems of their OCD clients.
