This book integrates modern science and medicine with alternative and self-help therapies. Updating current knowledge on obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), this book offers practical advice for specific and appropriate patient care. "Obsessive-Compulsive Disorders": covers spectrum illnesses, including somatoform, dissociative, eating, schizo-obsessive, neurological, and impulse-control conditions; defines and assesses OCD with DSM-IV and other instruments; discusses causative factors of OCD; examines and proposes improved naturally occurring veterinary animal models; details new pharmacological and combination/augmentation treatments and serotonin-reuptake inhibitors; provides a mind-brain interaction paradigm based on metabolic changes resulting from cognitive behavioural self-treatment; charts the growth of nonpharmacological and behavioural as well as alternative therapies, such as group and family support strategies and yoga meditation and more.
