According to Tompkins,
Obsessive- compulsive disorder is an anxiety disorder, and people who suffer with OCD—
like those who suffer with phobias, panic disorder, or social phobia—experience
intense anxiety or discomfort that they cannot effectively control. People with OCD
experience either obsessions or compulsions or both, and these symptoms cause
significant distress or affect their ability to function in their daily lives (2012, p. 10).
So, nowadays, there exists a variety of researches about treatments of OCD. It can be
classified based on the age, about physical or psychological, or others. Today, my topic is
“How many kinds of treatments of OCD are there in society?”
Cognitive behavior therapy divides into cognitive treatments and cognitive behavioural
treatments (CBT). But in the most of time, the cognitive treatment is connected tightly with
CBT, and people always treat OCD by combining the two treatments. In all the cognitive
behavior therapy, the first task is to confirm which level patients are in by the cognitive
behavioural model. Then, using the test result to design the reward that it helps to them to
avoid something that leading to the serious consequences, but it is hard because it depend on
the patient’s thought, the level of science and technology. And the procedure called” appraisal
process”. In the process, people need to be patient. After explaining the simple tasks, the next
step is to say the fundamental of treatment. The process tries to change the previous
behavioral habit, so the problem from the habit is resolved. And treatment therapists should
normalize the patients’ behavior by the procedure.
