Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder The Ultimate Teen Guide by Natalie Rompella

Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder strikes one in fifty adults. However, the disorder often remains untreated in young adults, despite advances in diagnostics. Though so many people suffer from OCD, very few seek professional help. Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder: The Ultimate Teen Guide helps teens understand OCD in greater detail. The guide explains different forms of OCD (checking, cleaning, scrupulosity) and related disorders (such as Obsessive-Compulsive Personality Disorder, Tourette's Syndrome, and Asperger's Disorder). Author Natalie Rompella voices many common concerns teens have when confronted with OCD, including how to deal with school, work, and friends. The book also discusses uncomfortable topics, such as obsessions with sexuality and other unwanted thoughts. The book features insights from teens who suffer from OCD, letting others know they are not alone. The book also encourages teens to seek help through treatment and provides details of different treatment options.


Rompella shares a bit of her personal story, reassuring the reader that OCD can be treated and managed...Advice on how to cope with school, work, and friends is shared. VOYA, June / July 2009
