Obsessive Compulsive Disorder

Synopsis
The programme consists of edited highlights following the first consultation and treatment of a patient who was greatly troubled by obsessive compulsive disorder. She initially presents with two phobias, of peanuts and glass but later on refers to hand washing and other rituals. The tape illustrates aspects of behavioural psychotherapy (graded exposure for the treatment of phobias). The hand washing is tackled with response prevention. Discussion of the triggering and maintaining factors, and the dangers of any psychotherapeutic endeavour is also included.
