An estimated five million Americans suffer from obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) and live diminished lives in which they are compelled to obsess about something or to repeat a similar task over and over. Traditionally OCD has been treated with Prozac or similar drugs. The problem with medication, aside from its cost, is that 30 percent of people treated don't respond to it, and when the pills stop, the symptoms invariably return.
In Brain Lock, Jeffrey M. Schwartz, MD, presents a simple four-step method for overcoming OCD that is so effective, it's now used in academic treatment centers throughout the world. Proven by brain-imaging tests to actually alter the brain's chemistry, this method doesn't rely on psychopharmaceuticals. Instead patients use cognitive self-therapy and behavior modification to develop new patterns of response to their obsessions. In essence they use the mind to fix the brain.
Using the real-life stories of actual patients, Brain Lock explains this revolutionary method and provides listeners with the inspiration and tools to free themselves from their psychic prisons and regain control of their lives.

I think this book could have been spoken in 1 hour. The repetition was tedious, but perhaps it was due to the audience that would purchase it. I was looking for something to shed light on living with someone with OCD and what I realized is that it is exactly as I thought. They believe their thoughts and have to act on them and that it is impossible for me to change those thoughts that can at sometimes be destructive to a relationship. Byron Katie has a process that is very effective at questioning ones thoughts that gets to it quickly if one is willing to inquire about the validity of their thoughts. Loving What Is helped me remove the responsibility for someone else's thoughts, beliefs and actions.
