In episode 211 of The OCD Stories podcast I interviewed Dr Jonathan Grayson and Bob Cianfrone. Jon has been specializing in the treatment of obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) for more than 40 years and is the author of Freedom from Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. He is on the podcast today to talk about the OCD subtype around the fear of going ‘crazy’, and is joined by Bob to share his experience. 

Dr Jonathan Grayson

We discuss what is the fear of going crazy, Bob’s story, finding the right treatment, an OCD therapy mindset, obsessions and compulsions, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) for this theme with a focus on exposure therapy (ERP), example exposures, living with uncertainty, words of hope and much much more. Hope it helps.
