This web site is exclusively devoted to promoting a greater understanding of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder’s (OCD) treatment and mental processes. The creator of this site, Dr. Steven Phillipson, recognizes that OCD is still minimally understood by the vast majority of mental health professionals. Although the most commonly known forms of OCD (contamination and checking) have received the greatest amount of media and research attention, lessor known forms of OCD (i.e. the purely obsessional type and the responsibility OC) make up a very large proportion of the clinical population. The articles presented here represent state of the art conceptual understanding and treatment approaches developed for mainstream and lessor studied forms of OCD.
