Summary: All of these people are suffering from obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), an emotionally crippling disease that afflicts up to six million Americans. Sufferers are powerless to stop petty thoughts and pointless rituals - cleaning, counting, avoiding, checking - which they repeat over and over until they feel they have ''gotten it right.'' In this landmark study, a distinguished psychiatrist and expert on OCD recounts the extraordinary experiences of dozens of her patients, many of
whom speak in their own words, and explores the successes of new and existing treatments. The Boy Who Couldn't Stop Washing offers new hope for OCD patients and their families. This important book is for everybody who is fascinated by the workings of the human mind. Book jacket.
