Synopsis

The Thought That Counts A Firsthand Account of One Teenager's Experience with Obsessive-compulsive DIsorder by Jared Douglas Kant, Martin Franklin, Linda Wasmer Andrews

In this book for young people who have been diagnosed with obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), Jared Kant discusses his own experiences with the illness, and the disruption and distress that it brought to his life as an adolescent. Combining this personal story with a candid and easy-to-understand description of the science behind OCD, Kant (now an adult who healthily and successfully manages his illness) also provides the facts that young people diagnosed with OCD need, such as how to find professional help, what types of therapies are available for this disorder, and how to deal with stressful situations at home and at school.

Reviews

This book is a searing personal account about life with OCD, and as a fellow sufferer, I was impressed by the unique insight it gives the reader...this book will strike a chord with other sufferers, and will help many readers understand what OCD really means. Daily Mail
