The new show The OCD Project is up & running on VH1. Dr. Tolin uses exposure & habituation. You can catch up on past episodes. Beware! This is graphic! http://www.vh1.com/shows/the_ocd_project/series.jhtml

Also, A & E will begin their new season of Obssessed on June 28th. The first season was highly informative.

Thanks Jan,
I thought Hording took over Obsessed. Happy to know it was some seasonal thing.

There is one therapist on there I wish I could see. This was the lady who went to a man's house who feared germs so much he didn't even have garbage cans in his house, everything had to be walked outside. And this therapist came over asking to use the restroom & asked for a garbage can b/c she was menstruating. I loved it. She just deals with the facts of life so well.

Dr. Tolin takes no prisoners;) He makes them face the fear head on. His associate took a woman to tea & dipped her scone in the toilet & the dr., patient & patient's mom ate the scone. It's so scary for them & I realize it sounds gross, but they move forward towards recovery. Ultimately, they will regain their lives from the fears. (((hugs))) jan
