Reviews

The book takes readers through the treatment of OCD in logical manner, making it really easy to follow an understand for young people and their parents.||It is written by four experts in the field who all specialise in OCD and children/young adults. It is written in a very approachable, non-threatening tone without being patronising or over-simplified... I would not hesitate to recommend this book to anyone dealing with a young person with OCD.||Breaking Free from OCD should be a staple book for OCD sufferers and their families. It ditches confusing medical jargon in order to give constructive and helpful information and advice. It is the kind of book which I wish I had owned when my OCD was at its worst, one which shows that there is light at the end of the tunnel, and shows you how to get there.||Do you have troublesome habits that get in the way? Do you have worries that bother you much more than you should? THIS BOOK MAY BE FOR YOU. The hardest thing for anyone to control is their own mind. This book points the way, to you and to those close to you, to free yourself from OCD.||In this marvellous book the authors provide the key information that teens and families need about OCD and its treatment. Highly recommended not only for patients but also for practitioners looking for material to use in their practices.||This is an excellent self-help book for young people who are suffering from OCD and their families and/or carers but it is also an invaluable resource for clinicians, teachers and other professionals who may be working with children with these difficulties. There are several excellent self-help books for OCD currently available but, as a mental health professional working in this area, I consider this to be one of the best I have come across.||When I discovered that my child had OCD I read many books on the subject but none as clear or well laid out as this one. I wish I'd had this to read right at the start...essential reading for anyone who has been recently diagnosed with OCD or suspects that their child may be suffering from it.||The guide does offer some excellent information for parents who want to tackle their child's OCD so I would most definitely recommend it to them.||I found this an extremely encouraging book, accessible to young people and adults alike, also doctors, teachers, family members and mental health workers, in fact anyone who wishes to understand more about Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, a troublesome condition that is often kept secret but is actually far more common than people realise.||I knew when I was presented with this book I was reading a something quality from a leading expert. This book is definitely ideal for young people and their families.||Breaking Free From OCD is written by a range of experts in the field who have extensive knowledge and experience of working with children and young people with this disorder. The book is, I feel, an invaluable step-by-step guide for young people and their families as well as being an excellent resource for the counsellor/therapists.||This clever book cuts through the clutter of medical jargon providing an easy to follow approach to overcoming obsessive thoughts and behaviors. With advice for parents and exercises for children and teens, the authors reassure the entire family while offering concrete ways to "break free".||It is easy to read, absorb and understand with definitions introduced slowly, clearly and repeated at intervals, along with real examples to perhaps identify with... I would not hesitate to recommend this book to anyone dealing with a young person with OCD.||Breaking Free from OCD (...) is presented as a "self-treatment programme", which aims to: (a) explain what OCD is; and (b) how to fix it... The book includes a broad range of useful worksheets... Each chapter contains a final section entitles "Advice for Parents or Carers", which is designed to support and guide the "young person" completing the programme... This resource may be useful for a school counsellor parent, or trusted adult, who could use it as the basis for supporting a young person presenting with OCD.
