Reviews for Brain Lock
As a psychologist I found this book most useful for its case histories of OCD clients. I often shared them with my own clients who stated that it was good to be able to relate to other people's stories and it meant they didnt feel so alone. They also liked hearing about how others with similar problems progressed through therapy using the strategies outlined in the book.
The book focus's on a four step therapy method- Relabel, Reattribute, Refocus and Revalue.
On the down side, I did not find the book particularly user friendly. It is very wordy and does not offer any useful hand-outs for clients. Its not a book I would recommend to a friend with OCD either, unless they were quite motivated and academically minded. That's not to say that it uses a lot of jargon, it's just that it finds a way to spin the 4 steps out over 11 chapters, which gets tedious after awhile.
Im not sure if I can say this in a review, but as a clinician I found the book "Getting over OCD" by J Abramowitz much more useful (see my review on it here at book depository). by Roslyn Hughesunder review
