David Tolin has written a great new book about do-it-yourself exposure therapy. You may remember him from his appearances on A&E's Hoarders or The OCD Project that I think was on VH1. I'm about halfway through the book and it's really really good. It's not just about OCD, but for the most part, the information about dealing with other anxiety applies to OCD as well.
I'm surprised I hadn't heard of this one, just stumbled onto it at the library. I can't even remember the name at the moment, but I think it's Face Your Fears. I am apparently too lazy to go downstairs and check [just googled, and yes, that is the name].
Anyway, it's really inspiring me to get moving on my summer plans for exposures. I will review more formally when I actually finish it.
