Welcome to the OCD ZONE blog. This blog is devoted exclusively to promoting a greater understanding of the treatment and mental processes of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD). The creator of this site, Dr Steven Phillipson, recognizes that Obsessive Compulsive Disorder is still minimally understood by the vast majority of mental health professionals. Although the most commonly known forms of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (contamination and checking) have received the greatest amount of media and research attention, lesser known forms of OCD (i.e. the purely obsessional type and responsibility OC) make up a very large proportion of the clinical population. The articles presented here represent state of the art conceptual understanding and treatment approaches developed for mainstream and lesser studied forms of OCD.
Steven Phillipson, Ph.D., is a licensed clinical psychologist who has specialized in the cognitive-behavioral treatment (CBT) of OCD since 1986. Dr. Phillipson has contributed numerous articles to the OC Foundation’s newsletter and produced the first video on the treatment of the purely obsessional type of OCD for the Foundation in 1991. In 1987, Dr. Phillipson, along with a colleague, started the first CBT/Support group for OCD sufferers in the New York area. Dr. Phillipson’s position as Clinical Director at the Center for Cognitive Behavioral Psychotherapy started in 1997. In addition, Dr Phillipson functions as a clinical site supervisor for doctoral candidates from a variety of local Ph.D. programs including, Long Island University, Fordham University, Yeshiva University and Rutgers University.
