Product Details

Product Description


The authors outline a fresh and creative perspective on cognitive therapy for OCD, derived from the development and testing of their Inference-Based Approach (IBA).  This makes an important contribution by addressing components neglected or omitted in earlier approaches – a must read for anybody involved in the treatment of OCD.
Jan van Niekerk, Clinical Psychologist, Fulbourn Hospital, Cambridge, UK

It is refreshing to have a new approach to therapy for OCD explained so clearly, with due regard to the theoretical subtlety of the Inference-Based Approach (IBA) approach. This book is a game-changer in this area of work and is a model of what careful research and evaluation can yield.
Richard S. Hallam, Visiting Professor of Clinical Psychology, University of Greenwich, UK

The Inference-Based Approach (IBA) to the treatment of Obsessive-Compulsive Disorders presents a new and useful way to provide an evidence-based intervention for OCD. This approach is compatible with standard cognitive-behaviour therapy, but it adds a fresh perspective with new emphases for clinicians and clients alike. You will no doubt find it to be most interesting, and highly useful.
Adam S. Radomsky, Associate Professor of Psychology, Concordia University, Canada

The Inference-Based Approach (IBA) has transformed the treatment of OCD in my private practice. This finely detailed treatment manual will now give clinicians – and their clients – access to the most innovative horizons of OCD clinical research and practice.
Bob Safion, LMHC  Private Practitioner, Anxiety Treatments, Massachusetts, USA

Building on a solid empirical and philosophical foundation, O’Connor and Aardema have written the definitive, practical guide to inference-based therapy for OCD for the practicing clinician that the field has been waiting for.
Gary Brown, Research Director and Doctor in Clinical Psychology, Royal Holloway University of London, UK

This is an excellent handbook on the Inference-Based Approach, the most viable and promising approach to OCD of the past ten years.  Based on firm research, the book is highly practical. The authors provide clear guidelines as to how therapists should deal with the underlying thoughts of OCD patients. A must for clinicians and students.
Paul Emmelkamp, Academy Professor, University of Amsterdam, Netherlands

From the Back Cover

This book is the first to compile and present the latest clinical strategies and offer a hands-on clinical guide to inference based therapy (IBT) for individuals with all types of obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD).

Recent findings have shown that OCD is primarily a reasoning problem whereby people erroneously infer that there is a reason to doubt themselves despite their senses and common sense saying otherwise. In the IBT model, the obsessional doubt is considered the source of OCD and the starting point for therapy. Inference-based therapy (IBT) offers an economical model effective for all OCD subtypes and is designed to help the person regain confidence in a realistic appreciation of events and move away from an imaginary doubt.

Using cartoons and illustrations, as well as clinical examples from the full range of OCD subtypes, this book is a fully interactive manual for clinicians, practitioners, and students. The book integrates theory and application, and pays special attention to case management, detailing all stages from meeting the client and explaining the approach, right through to terminating therapy and follow-up.
