“In this impressive volume, Mancini and his colleagues integrate rich clinical observations and ingenious empirical research to support the idea that the major driving force of obsessive-compulsive symptoms is fear of guilt. This powerful unifying theory makes an invaluable contribution to understanding and treating OCD, as I can testify from my own teaching and clinical work. I highly recommend this book to all scholars and practitioners who wish to expand their knowledge of OCD and its treatment.”

“This is a fascinating book on obsessive-compulsive disorder. Thoughtful and well informed, the authors argue that crucial to this disorder is the fear of moral misconduct. The arguments provided are convincing and thought provoking, both clinically and scientifically. The book is a rich, fresh and inspiring source for therapists and researchers alike. A must read for professionals interested in obsessive-compulsive disorder.”
