“Overcoming OCD: A Journey to Recovery” Goes to College

high res photoI’m happy to report that our book, Overcoming OCD: A Journey to Recovery will be required reading for a Fall 2015 General Psychology college course. The professor feels it will be a valuable addition to her curriculum.

I’m excited to get the word out that OCD, no matter how severe, is treatable. I’m even more excited that the potentially budding psychologists reading the book will learn what the proper treatment entails. And who knows? Maybe a few of these students are struggling with obsessive-compulsive disorder themselves, or know someone who is, and the book will hopefully benefit them personally.

At the very least, I hope our family’s journey helps students better understand OCD, and acts as a springboard for discussions about mental health treatment in general.

If you are a professor or are connected with a university in any capacity, or would like to see the book used at your alma mater, or just want to help spread the word, feel free to contact me at ocdtalk@yahoo.com. If you’d prefer, you can pass this flyer, Overcoming OCD A Journey to Recovery along to the appropriate people. Professors considering using the book in their classes can receive a free eBook exam copy.

Thanks to everyone for your continued support as we work to get the truth out about OCD!

    Congratulations- this is BIG, best, Lorre

  3. Wonderful news! Reading about OCD in my psychology class was one of the first steps towards me realizing I had OCD (and much later, PANS)–and getting the right treatment. I think there are so many people out there who have OCD but don’t know it, because they don’t know what OCD really is, much less how to treat it. I’m sure this will help people. Congratulations!
