“This book is a masterpiece for healing, health, and hope. It is readable and lofty at the same time. There is plenty of science here, but it is skillfully written so that it is easy to understand and easy to accept what is offered. There are no comparable books; this book stands alone. The author makes it clear that he knows OCD and cares about those stuck in the web of routines and rituals. He provides hope where there has been none. Families struggling with OCD are encouraged to use this book. The strategies and supports are life changing.”

“If you have a family member suffering from OCD, this masterful book offers guidance and hope. Dr. Abramowitz helps you understand what your loved one is going through, what treatment entails, and how you can provide the best support. This is an impressive work that fills a significant gap in the field, and that will be helpful to everyone who cares about someone with OCD.”

—Eric Storch, PhD, Professor and Vice Chair of Psychology, Menninger Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, Baylor College of Medicine

“Reading this book is basically like having Dr. Abramowitz as your family’s therapist. There are many explanations and examples that helped us understand what our daughter was going through and connect with her in a healthier way. The real game changer was when we successfully stopped participating in her compulsions. Following this book’s advice was not always easy, but it definitely improved our child’s self-confidence and reduced the level of frustration in our family.”

—Len G., Wake Forest, North Carolina

“By far the most comprehensive family-focused OCD resource. Dr. Abramowitz, one of the premier leaders in the field, includes everything you need to know in one easy-to-read book. He guides you through each step needed to help someone with OCD.”
