The book provides guidelines to enhance the skills necessary for developing clinical acumen. The distorted beliefs and functioning, familial factors and scope for inheriting the disorder and obsessive–compulsive spectrum are also described in detail. The book concludes with a discussion of obsessive–compulsive personality traits to help readers arrive at a holistic understanding of OCD, combining neuropsychological and psychoanalytical lenses.
