Obsessions and compulsions are hard to turn off.
The majority of individuals grappling with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) contend with both obsessions and compulsions. “Obsessions” entail persistent, distressing thoughts, mental images, or impulses that continually resurface, while “compulsions,” often referred to as “rituals,” involve behaviors individuals feel compelled to perform in order to alleviate anxiety or avert unwanted outcomes.
Common obsessions include fears of contracting an illness, causing harm to others, forgetting important tasks, or engaging in embarrassing or morally questionable actions. Typical compulsions encompass excessive cleaning, frequent checking, repetitive actions, hoarding, and arranging objects in specific patterns.
Despite recognizing the irrational nature of their fears and the senselessness of their compulsions, many individuals with OCD struggle to discontinue these behaviors. Research has consistently demonstrated that cognitive-behavioral therapy is a highly effective approach for helping individuals manage and ultimately overcome obsessive-compulsive disorder.
