The OCD Workbook is not intended as a substitute for psychiatric or psychological treatment by a qualified mental health professional. Rather, it should be used in the following ways: 1.In conjunction with ongoing psychiatric or psychological treatment. For example, you may be seeing a highly qualified professional who does not specialize in treating OCD. This book can be used to assist your therapist in the role of coach, guide, or advisor as you work through the steps toward getting control of your OCD.... 2. By people reluctant to seek professional help for one reason or another. You may have a desire to learn as much about OCD as possible, using this book as a guide for self-directed intervention. If you think you have OCD, we urge you to see a mental health professional who is experienced in the diagnosis and treatment of OCD. A psychiatrist or psychologist can confirm an OCD diagnosis and help you decide if self-directed cognitive-behavior therapy is appropriate for you.... 3. By family members seeking a greater understanding of OCD. Just as it is not recommended that a doctor treat his/her own family for other diseases, we do not recommend that family members take on the role of psychotherapist using this book, even if trained as therapists. However, family members can provide valuable support as the person with OCD works through the self-help process outlined in this book. Chapter 4 describes how a trusted friend or family member can play the role of behavioral assistant.
