In episode 27 of The OCD Stories podcast I interviewed Dr Guy Doron. I first interviewed Guy in January for episode 5. Guy is one of the leading researchers in relationship OCD (rOCD), and along with his team he his uncovering important information about this subtype of OCD. He has recently co-created an app for ROCD recovery. (links to download it below). This episode offers general OCD advice, so don’t worry if you don’t suffer with ROCD. OCD is OCD.
In this episode Guy explains the how the belief in change is important to achieve change, if we associate self with positive statements we adopt them, and seeking other potential alternative partners even only for comparison may make ROCD worse. We discuss what suffers have in common, relationship OCD beyond romantic, relationships including relationships to parents and God. He shares some great advice for life – letting experiences come in without too much analysis – to experience and be curious. Enjoy!
