Over på behaviortherapist.com har de et interview med dr. Jonathan Abramowitz om obsessiv-kompulsiv tilstand. Han fortæller bl.a. om:

* Hvad er Obsessiv-Compulsiv Disoder (OCD)? (På dansk tvangstanker og tvangshandlinger.)

* Almindelige former for OCD, herunder fælles kategorier for obsessioner – OCD er ikke altid frygt for bakterier og at vaske af hænder!

* Forskellige former for behandling af OCD og deres relative effektivitet.

* Hvad er Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) – det er ikke så slemt som det lyder! Abramowitz giver en fremragende gennemgang af baggrunden for og formålet med ERP og hvordan behandlingen udføres.

* Tilgængelige ressourcer for OCD-ramte og deres familier. (mest relevant for folk bosiddende i US)

* Og meget mere!

Interviewet giver et godt overblik over OCD og behandling af OCD, og kan hermed anbefales.
