I have two issues with this book. One is that the author is, in my opinion, too quick to dismiss the potential of natural therapies. Really only one paragraph is devoted to this topic and he is brief and almost disparaging in his dismissal, stating that there are no studies showing any benefits from natural therapies. Perhaps he has not seen any, but there are actually quite a number of natural treatments that offer at least as much success as the standard presciption medication treatment that he is--again, in my opinion--a little overly fond of. This is a widely contested topic and the chances are good that you will already fall into the pro-natural therapies camp or not, but in any case, I suggest that you look elsewhere for solid information on this area. The OCD Workbook does not have any to offer.
My second niggle is with the ERP exercise itself--in some applications. In short, the basic premise is to repeat something you have an obseeive fear towards until you are bored of it. That's rather simplified, but I don't want to go into too much detail! Anyhow, I agree that this reduces the fear associated with not carrying out the related compulsion. (I can hardly disagree; studies have proven it to be so). However, many other psychological studies have shown far greater benefits for people who, instead of concentrating on their fears, move towards a vision of freedom. But there are no books I know of that teach this specifically for OCD, yet. Perhaps I will write one. :)
