For a year and a half, clinical therapist Henny Visser (PhD) and I have been working on a book for healthcare professionals who want to better recognize, diagnose, and treat OCD. We bundled her clinical and scientific knowledge and my experiential knowledge about OCD. I’ve always been open about my OCD, but to go public with your illness like this is next level. Yet I really wanted to write this book, based on the conviction that I can help others with my experience. It’s an incredibly complex and heterogeneous disorder. We’re very proud of the end result. Many thanks to publisher Bohn Stafleu van Loghum, the largest media company for healthcare in the Netherland.
There have been many reviews and interviews related to the book, you can find them here:
