“This book differentiates cognitive and behavioral strategies and discusses how to use them together with complementary approaches, such as motivational interviewing and acceptance and commitment therapy. Practical issues regarding homework are discussed, and the use of various scales is highlighted. Take-home messages at the end of each chapter boil down key points and enhance the clinician's ability to implement OCD treatment techniques in real-world settings. Rego runs an outstanding training program in cognitive-behavioral therapy, and his wealth of experience shows in this book.”

—Eric Hollander, MD, Director, Autism and Obsessive Compulsive Spectrum Program, Montefiore Medical Center and Albert Einstein College of Medicine


“Rego has done the profession—and sufferers of OCD—an incredible service by assembling such a thorough guide to treatment. The book addresses all the variants of OCD and presents methods for differential diagnosis of disorders that may bear similarity to this complex condition. It should be required reading for any clinician who regularly treats clients with OCD.”

—Dean McKay, PhD, ABPP, Department of Psychology, Fordham University; past president, Association for Behavioral and Cognitive Therapies


“A timely and extremely valuable volume that includes up-to-date summaries of all treatment interventions for OCD. This book should certainly be in the library of any clinician who treats patients with OCD, and will also be of tremendous value to students and researchers in the field.”

—Darin D. Dougherty, MD, Department of Psychiatry, Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School


“Rego has produced a comprehensive, well-written guide to the assessment and treatment of OCD. Grounded in the scientific literature, the book provides detailed instructions for administering established exposure-based methods and for integrating cognitive techniques, motivational enhancement strategies, and acceptance-based approaches. It features helpful practice tools, including fact sheets, handouts, questionnaires, diaries, and worksheets. This roadmap to effective treatment of OCD will be useful for students, new therapists, and experienced clinicians alike.”

—Martin M. Antony, PhD, ABPP, Department of Psychology, Ryerson University, Canada
