"Dr. Storch and colleagues and all of the chapter authors have given us an amazing overview of the relationship OCD has to other conditions, how it is best treated outside of the standard one-on-one session, and what we have to look forward to in the future of OCD and Related Disorders Care.This book is a welcome addition to the library of anyone treating OCD and Related Disorders, and will likely be dog-eared from continued use as a reference both in and out of sessions."-Patrick B. McGrath, PhD, Head of Clinical Services, NOCD"
"This is an exceptional and much-needed compilation, compulsory for anyone wishing to keep abreast of the most recent advances in the field of OCD and related disorders. The authors successfully synthesize emerging research and concepts into practical treatment implications and recommendations, no small feat given the complexity of the data and the disorders."-Rachel A. Davis, MD, Associate Professor of Psychiatry and Vice Chair for Clinical Affairs, Medical Director, OCD and Neuromodulation Programs, University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus"

"As a clinician who specializes in the treatment of OCD and related disorders, I often feel as if I am one unanswered question away from dramatically reducing someone's suffering. People with these conditions rarely fit perfectly into one simple category for which a manual would spell out the whole treatment approach. Storch, Abramowitz, and McKay, to whom I have grown accustomed turning to for answers, have pulled together the most comprehensive collection of studies possible in Complexities in Obsessive Compulsive and Related Disorders. This will be the first place I look when I think 'what about...?' and it will be required reading for anyone I train."-Jon Hershfield, MFT, Director of the Center for OCD and Anxiety at Sheppard Pratt"
"Storch, Abramowitz, and McKay have assembled an all-star cast to tackle this subject. Clinicians take note, this is not an ivory tower compilation intended only for scientific investigators. This book provides highly useful clinical information that can inform the implementation of treatment. Descendants of Copernicus may someday discover OCD is not the center of the OCRD universe, but, for now, it provides a practical theme for a book that will enlighten readers about clinical conditions the editors rightly contend have been 'misunderstood, misdiagnosed, and mistreated.'"-C. Alec Pollard, PhD, Director, Center for OCD & Anxiety-Related Disorders, Saint Louis Behavioral Medicine Institute, Professor Emeritus of Family and Community Medicine, Saint Louis University School of Medicine "

Well done!"-Gail Steketee, PhD, Professor and Dean Emerita, Boston University"

Authored by a who's who of leading authorities, this book brings much needed clarity to the DSM-5 conceptualization of OCRDs through careful description of the unique and overlapping clinical features and highly pragmatic assessment and treatment guidelines for over a dozen, often poorly understood, yet surprisingly common, OCD-related clinical presentations, including hoarding, body dysmorphia, hairpulling, skinpicking, sensory intolerance, Tourette's disorder, as well as OCD complicated by trauma, substance use, and autism."-John Piacentini, PhD, ABPP, Director, UCLA Child OCD, Anxiety and Tic Disorders Program and Center for Child Anxiety, Resilience, Education and Support (CARES) "
