Themes of different compulsive behaviors:

  • Avoidance
  • Compulsive crying (other OCD influenced emotions)
  • Self reassurance (sneaking them in sometimes)
  • Decontamination
  • Checking
  • Magical compulsions
  • Perfectionistic compulsions
  • Counting
  • Tracing
  • Touching/ tapping
  • Mental compulsions (there is an episode just on this)
  • Protective compulsions
  • Body focused
  • Self-mutilating (cutting, burning)
  • Hair pulling/ skin picking (this may or may not be due to OCD, it may be due to trichotillomania mean hair pulling or excoriation-means skin picking)
