Book jacket.
If you struggle with violent, unpleasant, or blasphemous thoughts that won't go away no matter how hard you try, this book can help. Obsessive thoughts like these can be symptoms of obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). Whether you have a formal diagnosis of OCD or experience these kinds of thoughts without diagnosis, the safe and effective techniques in this book can help you regain peace of mind.
We all occasionally think thoughts that are completely out of character. We imagine, for example, that we might swerve our car into oncoming traffic or take the kitchen knife we're using to prepare dinner and use it to harm someone we love. Many of us simply ignore thoughts like these, but some of us return to them again and again in our minds: What if I cause an accident? What if I hurt some I care about?
