Jonathan S. Abramowitz, PhD, is Professor of Psychology and Director of the Anxiety and Stress Disorders Clinic at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Before moving to Carolina, Dr. Abramowitz founded and directed the OCD and Anxiety Disorders Program at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota. His award-winning research on OCD has been supported by the National Institute of Mental Health, among others, and he serves on the Scientific Advisory Board of the Obsessive Compulsive Foundation. A frequent conference presenter, Dr. Abramowitz is widely quoted in the media. He lives in Chapel Hill with his wife and two daughters.


"OCD can make you feel alone, misunderstood, and trapped. With Getting Over OCD, all that will change. Dr. Abramowitz, a world renowned expert, coaches you through a program that can free you from your struggle with obsessions and compulsions. He doesn't soft-pedal the work required -- you're up against a powerful challenger. But his warm and reassuring voice, coupled with a comprehensive, scientifically proven, step-by-step format, will keep you supported and motivated." - Reid Wilson, author of Don't Panic "It is now well documented that cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) is the most effective treatment for OCD, and Abramowitz is one of our most distinguished researcher-clinicians in the field. This first-rate book presents CBT principles and techniques in a self-help format that will be invaluable to OCD patients. Following the steps outlined here can help readers experience a significant decrease in their symptoms. Abramowitz's positive and motivating style will serve patients well; clinicians and researchers also will find this book a 'must read." - Michael A. Jenike, Department of Psychiatry, Harvard Medical School, USA
