#77- Symmetry OCD, the “feeling problem”, trauma, and compulsive flooding

October 13, 2021

I’m back again with an episode that is full of diverse topics and a host of information. First, I answer a question about Symmetry OCD (8:25) and discuss what it is, what it isn’t, and what can be done about it. Next, I talk about an article I wrote about OCD being a feeling problem, not a thinking problem (21:46). After this, I talk about what to do when people say not to work with a therapist who focuses on the past or past trauma in OCD treatment (25:52). Finally, I talk about “compulsive flooding,” whether it’s good or bad, and how to minimize it’s negative impact in POCD treatment (30:22).

Thanks, as always, for listening, and please feel free to mail me in your audio question to Questions@fearcastpodcast.com
