Learn all things OCD with the OCD Whisperer Podcast.
- Do not try to think your way out of OCD! Using logic and rationale will only perpetuate the compulsive analysis cycle!
- Instead remind the person it is OCD flaring up and what OCD is.
- Do not provide incessant reassurance! This will give momentary relief only to reinforce the OCD cycle and more questions will come up, even anger and a more desperate attempt to have certainty that everything will be OK.
- Instead lovingly and with warmth set limits of how much reassurance you will provide (we all do need reassurance sometimes).
- Do not accommodate OCD! This will feed the cycle and make it last longer!
- Instead create a step by step plan to reduce accommodations.
