Happy New Year to everyone! I hope it’s a year filled with good things for you and your loved ones.
I’d like to spread the word about a new and important Facebook support group that has been created by Seth J. Gillihan, PhD, who is my coauthor of Overcoming OCD: A Journey to Recovery. Seth is also the author of two books on Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT).
Seth’s Facebook group is for those who deal with, or have loved ones who suffer with, obsessions about hurting people. Specifically, Seth has chosen to focus on what he calls “Malevolence OCD,” distinguishing it from the more general Harm OCD, which can be accidental.
This type of OCD can be horrifying for those who deal with it, and the simple fact of knowing you are not alone can bring great relief. Seth can help you understand this condition and most importantly, give you insight into managing it. The group is closed as Seth understands that this can be a sensitive and very personal topic.

Again, best wishes for a happy and healthy new year for us all!
Thank you for sharing about this. A great resource to share with others.
I agree – so important for people to know they are not alone.
