In episode 285 I interviewed Dr Michael Greenberg. Michael is a licensed clinical psychologist.
In this episode I chat with Michael about his reflections on his first episode, Michael’s articles, what is somatic/sensorimotor OCD, depersonalisation/derealisation, how rumination can maintain somatic symptoms, the difference between awareness and attention, he reads his exercise from the article ‘how to stop paying attention’, the 6 things that get in the way when trying not to ruminate, how he treats somatic OCD, removing analysis and avoidance, we discuss mindfulness and why it may not be good for OCD in Michael’s opinion, practicing reducing rumination, and much more. Hope it helps.
