In episode 120 of The OCD Stories podcast I interviewed Dr Steven Phillipson. Steven is a licensed clinical psychologist who specializes in Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy for OCD. He co-founded the first Support group for OCD sufferers in the New York area in 1987. Steven is the Clinical Director at the Center for Cognitive Behavioral Psychotherapy.

In this episode I got Steven on to talk about what Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) actually is, what Obsessive Compulsive Personality Disorder (OCPD) is and how they differ. We talk about how the media misrepresents OCD as a condition, and how this gets picked up by the general public who unknowingly use phrases like “I’m so OCD” or “I’m a little bit OCD”. We discuss what we can do about these phrases being used. This was an eye opening talk, and will hopefully break down some of the stigma that faces those with OCD (and OCPD). Hope it helps.
