John is a psychotherapist specializing in OCD, anxiety disorders, phobias and more. He’s the author of “Retrain for Anxious Brain” and he is here today to answer some questions about OCD. First we are discussing, the levels of OCD and how minor tendencies can actually be beneficial to a person. He explains that these tendencies can lay dormant or be functional for a long period of time before getting triggered and turning into impairing OCD. We talk about the differences of OCD and OCPD, personality disorders… I ask him about this new “Selfie Disorder” that just was announced earlier this week. We talk about hoarding and how it’s the same but opposite to OCD. And we are talking about if its genetic or developed. This is a really informative episode, so share with anyone you know suffering with OCD or anxiety.
