Reviews for Stand Up to OCD!: A CBT Self-Help Guide and Workbook for Teens

A quick and easy read. There were lots of pictures and the book was not very text-heavy. It used case studies of three individuals. This was useful as they each had different aspects of OCD so it really helped me to understand the different ways that it can affect people. At the end the book talks about the successes of the three case studies in overcoming OCD, which helped to give reassurance and hope. I enjoyed how the authors made a 'monster' out of OCD. Rather than something invisible, the OCD was a blue monster who spoke - and that really helped me understand what cognitive patterns were arising from the OCD. There were comic aspects to the book, as well as general pictures. This made it more interactive and fun, especially for people who may not enjoy reading. The step-by-step strategies were really useful. It helps people know where to start in terms of overcoming this disorder. * Holly Yates, Anxious Times *
