Description

Stand up to OCD!

Imagine each person's brain has a captain and crew. For a person struggling with OCD, it's as if OCD has kidnapped the captain and changed the settings in the brain. Luckily there are plenty of tips and skills you can learn to disobey OCD and not do what he tells you. Join David, Riya and Sarah as they find out about how OCD sneaks into their lives and all the tricks you can use to stand up to OCD!

This illustrated CBT self-help guide and workbook is ideal for young people with OCD ages 12-17 years. It gives teens a deeper understanding of how OCD works and how they can carry out their own CBT with the help of the interactive workbook at the back of the book.

Reviews

'

A quick and easy read. There were lots of pictures and the book was not
very text-heavy.
It used case studies of three individuals. This was useful as they each had different
aspects of OCD so it really helped me to understand the different ways that it can
affect people. At the end the book talks about the successes of the three case
studies in overcoming OCD, which helped to give reassurance and hope.
I enjoyed how the authors made a 'monster' out of OCD. Rather than something
invisible, the OCD was a blue monster who spoke - and that really helped me
understand what cognitive patterns were arising from the OCD.
There were comic aspects to the book, as well as general pictures. This made it
more interactive and fun, especially for people who may not enjoy reading.
The step-by-step strategies were really useful. It helps people know where to start
in terms of overcoming this disorder.
