Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD) is a mental health disorder that affects people of all ages and walks of life. It develops when a person becomes trapped in a cycle of obsessions and compulsions.

Obsessions are intrusive, unwelcome thoughts, ideas, or desires that cause profoundly painful feelings. 

Compulsions are activities that an individual engages in in order to free himself or herself of obsessions and/or reduce distress. 

Contamination obsessions, violent obsessions, sexual obsessions, and symmetry obsessions are all subcategories of OCD. 

In recent years, scientific researchers have developed viable treatments for Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD) that have significantly reduced symptoms in OCD patients. 

Evidence-based treatment using Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy and Exposure/Response Prevention is the most effective treatment for OCD in the world today.

Body Dysmorphic Disorder (BDD) is a preoccupation with one or more perceived flaws or defects in one’s physical appearance that are not visible to others or look minor to them (American Psychiatric Association, 2013). 

In reaction to the appearance concerns, the individual has engaged in repetitive actions (e.g., mirror checking, excessive grooming, skin picking, reassurance seeking) or mental activities (e.g., comparing his or her appearance to that of others) at some time during the disorder’s course (American Psychiatric Association, 2013). 

BDD is connected with anxiety, social anxiety, social avoidance, depression, and perfectionism, as well as low extroversion and self-esteem (American Psychiatric Association, 2013). 

BDD can be treated using Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and other treatment techniques.
