OCD Whisperer Podcast # 51- Interview with Dr. Jonathan Grayson on OCD, recovery, and motivation

December 13, 2021

Learn all things OCD with the OCD Whisperer Podcast.

 

Today I talk with Dr. Jonathan Grayson is a licensed psychologist (PSY26643) and has been specializing in the treatment of obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) for more than 40 years and is a nationally recognized expert. He was the first person in the nation to start an OCD support group, and he wrote the book Freedom From Obsessive Compulsive Disorder.

  2. When someone is really unmotivated to implement ERP, is there anything they can do to get motivated again?
  3. Lastly, what words of inspiration would you like to leave for our listeners?
  4.
