Publisher's Summary

Rewire the brain processes that cause obsessions and compulsions - and take back your life!

If you've ever wondered why you seem to get trapped in an endless cycle of obsessive, compulsive thoughts, you don't have to wonder anymore. Grounded in cutting-edge neuroscience and evidence-based cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), Rewire Your OCD Brain will show you how and why your brain gets stuck in a loop of obsessive thinking, uncertainty, and worry; and offers the tools you need to short-circuit this response and get your symptoms under control-for good. 

Written by clinical psychologist Catherine Pittman and clinical neuropsychologist William Youngs, this groundbreaking book will show how neurological functions in your brain lead to obsessions, compulsions, and anxiety. You'll also find tons of proven-effective coping strategies to help you manage your worst symptoms.

The brain is powerful, and the more you work to change the way you respond to obsessive thoughts, the more resilient you'll become. If you're ready to rewire the brain processes that lie at the root of your obsessive thoughts, this book has everything you need to get started today.

An indispensable guide

This is the best book we have heard on this topic thus far. The authors has explained every aspect of what happens in the brain in detail which is something many would want to know, to get a grip of the situation. We recommend this as an essential read to everyone.

Focuses entirely on understanding the workings of the brain

This book was a helpful way to under stand the way the brain works around anxiety but was lacking in any applicable tools for OCD outside of regulation.

Wonderful in-depth neuroscience of OCD

I love very detailed books that explain exactly how things work. This book is that. As one example, the book helped me realize that fighting the stress response backfires because once the adrenaline is released, it has to work it’s way through the body for the stress response to be over. I used to freak out each time I felt my anxiety levels rise. Now I just mindfully breathe into it, waiting for it to work it’s course. It’s much more freeing. You definitely still need to work with a therapist, and the authors say so. But this book can definitely be of amazing help on the journey to taking back your life from OCD.

Great Help for OCD

this is a wonderful book. Catherine Pittman makes complicated brain science accessible to not only the provider, but the consumer of mental health treatment. the narrator is a little bit boring at times, but the repetition in the book is excellent. stick with it. and read it again and again. I highly recommend this as a therapist who treats OCD on a regular basis.

Shallow

Why don't Neurologists focus on the hardware, where they owe much of science, instead of software where their analyses sound ridiculous?

Really useful and easy to understand

For anyone wanting to understand anxiety and OCD this is a great book with lots of helpful and accessible techniques to combat your anxiety and/or OCD. Unfortunately, the narration wasn’t great-bit tinny and dry.
