In episode 113 of The OCD Stories podcast I interviewed Dr Jonathan Grayson. Jon with his wife, Cathy founded the LA treatment centre for anxiety and OCD. Jon has been working with people with OCD for 35 years and is the author of Freedom from Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. He founded the support group GOAL and is also known for his idea virtual camping.

I chatted with Jon about how to accept the intrusive unwanted thoughts of a taboo nature, how to help treatment resistant children and young adults start treatment, the key things that help people recover quicker, dealing with obsessions at bedtime, dealing with low insight OCD, advice for parents who are resisting treatment, is it possible to recover from OCD by changing behaviours alone?, and much more. Hope it helps!
