Default Understanding Obsessive-compulsive Disorder II

Intolerance of uncertainty is another common feature of OCD. A recent self-help book (Freedom from obsessive-compulsive disorder: A personalized recovery program for living with uncertainty by J. Grayson) differs from the other good self-help books on OCD by focusing extensively on tolerating uncertainty.

I haven't seen the book myself but Alec Pollard reviewed it in the Summer 2005 volume of Cognitive and Behavioral Practice. Alec knows OCD really well and his review makes it sound as though the book would be useful in understanding how intolerance of uncertainty fits into OCD (and would be useful for clients too).
