Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is a chronic condition characterized by obsessions/compulsions and leads to distress or disruption of functioning. Obsessions are repetitive thoughts or cravings, which can lead to distress or anxiety. Compulsions are repetitive behaviors or thoughts that are performed by strict rules or response to an obsession.
Obsessions and aspirations that cause discomfort to the patient and disturb his social or individual functioning are related to obsessive-compulsive disorder if they are not the result of other mental disorders.
Psychological aspects of therapy: psychotherapy is conducted, in which the members of the family are often involved, a group method is used. Psychoanalytic psychotherapy: there is no clear evidence of its effectiveness, but insight-oriented psychotherapy can be useful in some patients. Behavioral and cognitive psychotherapy are relatively rare.
