NOMINATED by Melinda Stanley, Ph.D., IOCDF professional member:
These two authors have created a vivid and intimately personal account of the suffering and treatment of OCD with a unique blending of patient and expert provider perspectives. Their collaborative work offers a creative and eye-opening view into the ‘rabbit hole’ of OCD and the tremendous challenges and rewards that accompany the road to recovery. Ms. Bloom’s candid sharing of her personal struggles and triumphs, interwoven with Dr. Mouton-Odum’s clear and knowledgeable description of the theory and practice of behavioral treatment for OCD, makes this a ‘must-read’ for sufferers and those who support them. The road out of the rabbit hole is not easy, but this book offers hope and encouragement for sufferers who want to begin that journey.
