Synopsis: In a book that will change the way we think about obsessive-compulsive disorders, distinguished OCD expert Lee Baer examines a widespread yet little understood condition.

Everyone has bad thoughts-even those of a violent, blasphemous, or sexual nature. For most of us, they are often only mildly disconcerting and do not impair behavior. But consider the mother paralyzed by the fear of accidentally poisoning her infant, or the more than one million women each year who suffer from postpartum depression and experience thoughts of harming their babies. They often suffer in silence rather than expose their unwanted thoughts to a doctor.

Now, based on his extensive work with obsessive-compulsive disorders, Dr. Lee Baer turns our attention to the common and underlying problem of unwanted, inappropriate, and obsessive thoughts. At once an insightful exploration of this silent epidemic in our midst and a powerful guide for those suffering from this disorder, Baer draws on groundbreaking research to find what causes these bad thoughts, giving sufferers information on medication or self-help treatment. Most important, in helping all of us understand this condition, he provides a way to find peace of mind.

About the Author: Lee Baer, Ph.D., is an internationally recognized expert in the treatment of OCD and related disorders. Author of Getting Control: Overcoming Your Obsessions and Compulsions, Baer is an associate professor of psychology at Harvard Medical School and the director of research of the OCD unit at Massachusetts General Hospital as well as of the OCD Institute at McLean Hospital.
