Book Review: Because We are Bad: OCD and a Girl Lost in Thought

Lily pictured with a copy of her book.

'Because We are Bad: OCD and a Girl Lost in Thought' is a new book about one young lady's experiences of growing up with OCD. The book was published last week, so we sent a review copy to one of our members, James Lloyd, and this is his review.

Book review by James Lloyd
Because We Are Bad: OCD and a Girl Lost in Thought
by Lily Bailey. Published by Canbury Press, Hardback, £14.99

The next time someone tells you that they’re “a little bit OCD”, give them a copy of this book. Because We Are Bad is a moving, searingly honest account of what it’s really like to live with OCD. Lily takes us back to her early experiences of the illness, describing how it took root inside her mind and evolved into a monster.

New OCD Workbook - Help Needed

Dr Stephanie Fitzgerald

Dr Stephanie Fitzgerald, friend of OCD-UK and Clinical Psychologist, is writing a new workbook about OCD.

The aim of the workbook will be to explain CBT techniques in a very practical way to help people apply them to overcome their OCD. Stephanie is keen to make sure the workbook is as helpful as possible and so is asking people to tell her what they think is missing from other books, and what they would like to see in a workbook specifically aimed for those with OCD. 

If you have any comments or suggestions then please contact Stephanie directly on: stephanie@fitzgeraldpsychology.com

The press release for the book describes this as a practical guide written by three leading Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) experts which enables you to make sense of your symptoms, and gives a clear plan to help you conquer OCD. The book does not fail to offer just that!

If you believe that Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD) is primarily a psychological illness and that Cognitive Behavioural Treatment (CBT) holds the key to restoring good health then this is the book for you.

Obsessive Compulsive Disorder: The Essential Guide - Book Review

Obsessive Compulsive Disorder: The Essential Guide

A review by Lucy (OCD sufferer, aged 15).

The book covers many un answered questions about OCD that I have been thinking about and I think it will educate new readers of OCD into the real in site. A few examples of what the book covers is “What causes OCD?”, “Treatment explained” and “Getting help”. These are some of the sections that I found really helpful. It also provides a case study for carer’s and some of the many symptoms which help them understand that the OCD compulsions and obsessions lots of others do as well.
