Of note, other detrimental, traumatic life events of a psychological or social nature have been associated with OCD with different possible implications. For instance, one study compared patients with OCD plus post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) who developed OCD after clinically significant trauma (designated "post-traumatic OCD") to general OCD patients in terms of sociodemographic and clinical features. Compared with general OCD patients, "Post-traumatic OCD" presented several phenotypic differences such as: later age at onset of obsessions; increased rates of some obsessive-compulsive dimensions (such as aggressive and symmetry features); increased rates of mood, anxiety, impulse-control and tic disorders; greater "suicidality and severity of depressive and anxiety symptoms; and a more frequent family history of PTSD, major depressive disorder and generalized anxiety disorder." 79,126 One study of a treatment-resistant OCD subgroup found that all subjects who met formal criteria for OCD and comorbid PTSD had PTSD onset that preceded OCD onset.127

This handbook examines evidence-based treatment of obsessive-compulsive and related disorders for a broad clinical audience. Focusing on both children and adults with these conditions, it discusses various manifestations of OCD (e.g., contamination, perfectionism), related conditions (e.g., hoarding, trichotillomania, and Tourette syndrome), and cases with complicating factors. Chapters describe case specifics, offer assessment guidelines, and illustrate evidence-based psychotherapy. Case examples depict real-life complexities of presentation, notably in terms of comorbid conditions and hard-to-treat subpopulations.

Adam Lewin, Ph.D., ABPP, is a University of South Florida Associate Professor in the Department of Pediatrics at the USF Rothman Center for Neuropsychiatry with a joint appointment in Psychiatry and Behavioral Neurosciences and a courtesy appointment in Psychology. He received his Ph.D. in Clinical and Health Psychology from the University of Florida in 2007. Subsequently, Dr. Lewin completed his clinical residency and a postdoctoral National Institutes of Mental Health (NIMH) research fellowship (in Psychology and Behavioral Neuroscience) at the Semel Institute for Neuropsychiatry and Human Behavior at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA). Dr. Lewin's clinical and research activities focus on obsessive-compulsive spectrum and anxiety disorders. He has received a young investigator award from NARSAD (National Association for Research in Schizophrenia and Affective Disorders - now the Brain and Behavior Research Foundation) and was awarded the 2007-2008 Joseph Drown Foundation and Friends of the Semel Institute Fellowship to fund his research activities. Current research interests focus on improving the specificity of treatments, treatment dissemination and identifying biomarkers of OCD and tic disorders in children. He received grants from the International OCD Foundation (IOCDF) and the University of South Florida Research Foundation to help support his research and is a 2012-13 NIMH CHIPS (Child Intervention, Prevention and Services) Fellow. Dr. Lewin has over 100 peer-reviewed publications and is on the editorial board for four scientific journals. Clinically, Dr. Lewin specializes in OCD, anxiety, Tourette/tic, trichotillomania and developmental disorders. Dr. Lewin evaluates both pediatric and adult patients for cognitive-behavioral treatment of OCD, anxiety and habit reversal therapy for tic spectrum disorders, skin picking, hair pulling/trichotillomania.

This volume in the Advances in Psychotherapy series is a thorough guide to the effective diagnosis and empirically supported treatment for obsessive-compulsive disorder. The authors review the DSM-5 and ICD-10 diagnostic criteria, current theories and models, prevalence rates, and comorbidity, and provide a well-thought out examination of current treatments. "All of the books in this series are written for a wide range of mental health professionals, but psychologists and psychiatrists will benefit the most from the wealth of knowledge in this volume. Another wonderful feature of these books is their usefulness across clinical, research, and academic settings."Nicholas Greco IV, MS, BCETS, CATSM, Columbia College of Missouri, in DOODY'S BOOK REVIEWS, 2015

Application of repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) for treating obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) has been promising and approved by the Food and Drug Administration in 2018, but effects differ between patients. Knowledge about clinical predictors of rTMS response may help to increase clinical efficacy but is not available so far.
