In episode 299 I chat with Justin Hughes. Justin is a licensed professional counsellor in Dallas, Texas who specializes in Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) for Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD).
In this episode I chat with Justin about some of the barriers that get in the way of Christians seeking treatment, he share’s some relevant scripture, why OCD is not a spiritual problem, seeing a therapist regardless of their own faith, the concept of common grace, we discuss miracles, uncertainty and Christianity, doing exposure and response prevention (ERP) without crossing the client’s religious and personal values, dealing with the guilt and shame of having had certain intrusive thoughts, speaking with family member’s who are hesitant about therapy, and much more. Hope it helps.
