Show Summary Details

Preview

The Oxford Handbook of Obsessive Compulsive and Spectrum Disorders reviews current literature on obsessive compulsive disorder and its associated spectrum conditions—body dysmorphic disorder, hoarding, trichotillomania, tic disorders, and Tourette’s Syndrome. Articles summarize and synthesize current findings, providing an authoritative guide for practice and research in this unique subject area. With sections dedicated to phenomenology and epidemiology, biological features, genetic factors, neurological features, and cognitive processing models for understanding how people with OCD and spectrum conditions respond to information. Articles then examine family and social relationships and personality features, and how these factors can affect an individual with an OC spectrum disorder, especially older adults, children, and adolescents. Theoretical models for understanding these disorders and newer experimental therapies for treating them are also presented. A final article examines some of the most challenging research issues and understudied aspects of these psychiatric problems, especially hoarding, with hopes that this volume will encourage original research.

Keywords: obsessive compulsive disorder; body dysmorphic disorder; hoarding; trichotillomania; spetrum of disorders; tic disorders; Tourette's Syndrome; social relationships; personality features
