CBT for OCD: Podcast 042

This podcast is the narrated version of my article 3 Vital CBT Techniques for OCD.

CBT can be useful for treating OCD but to be effective we must consider other dimensions of the condition as well.

In this episode I talk about:

  • OCD, the malevolent tyrant
  • Some common obsessions and compulsions
  • The effects of the toxic imagination
  • OCD isn’t just a thought disorder
  • CBT Technique for OCD 1: Find the underlying need
  • CBT Technique for OCD 2: Focus on and trust observable reality
  • CBT Technique for OCD 3: Externalize the OCD
