Overcoming OCD: A Journey to Recovery
Approximately 2.3% of the population between ages 18-54 suffers from OCD, which out ranks mental disorders such as schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, or panic disorder. For many it takes many years to find the proper treatment. Less than 10% of those suffering are actually in treatment.

This important show addresses Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) from both a personal and professional perspective. On this show Janet Singer and Dr. Seth J. Gillihan discuss their new book, Overcoming OCD: A Journey to Recovery. In the back and forth with host, Suzanne Phillips, you will hear from Janet Singer, a mother who shares the painful journey with her college age son, whose OCD leaves him so debilitated that he can barely eat, move or refrain from self-cutting. You will hear about her feelings and the impact on the family as she advocates for her son through rounds with different doctors, institutions, treatments, medications and side effects to recovery. 

Balancing her perspective you will hear from psychologist, Dr. Seth Gillihan who will provide answers about diagnosis, medications, Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy as well as factors and resources that make hope and recovery possible. Whether you are a treating professional or a person who has suffered with OCD you will find this show moving and valuable.
