Obsessive-Compulsive and Related Disorders (OCRDs) have received considerable attention over the past two decades culminating with the inclusion of a new classification category of Obsessive-Compulsive and Related Disorders (OCRDs) in DSM-5. This group of conditions includes OCD along with
two newly minted conditions (Hoarding Disorder and Excoriation Disorder) and others previously classified as Somatoform Disorders (Body Dysmorphic Disorder) and Impulse Control Disorders (Hair Pulling Disorder). The implications for research on these conditions, as well as their relations with one
another, are significant since their aggregation is based on putative central mechanisms with limited empirical support to date. Indeed, the past decades have seen a dramatic surge in research on OCRDs. Such scholarship has occurred across several domains including clinical phenomenology,
assessment, and psychological therapies. A complete synthesis of the emerging data across these domains would be beyond the scope of a single journal article or series of articles while having the ability to comprehensively discuss advances in the field and stimulating in these areas

Many of the available textbooks, although meritorious in their own right, are outdated and do not address the most recent research advances and emerging clinical implications. Indeed, the past decade has seen a tremendous growth in knowledge on treatment, assessment, treatment augmentation, and
basic science that is not contained fully within existing volumes (see discussion of specific texts further below). Thus, providing a comprehensive textbook that addresses recent advances will provide a much needed update to the field of OCRDs. Furthermore, recent texts primarily address OCRDs from
a biological standpoint, neglecting psychosocial theoretical and intervention approaches that enjoy the most empirical support of any conceptual and treatment approaches for most of the relevant conditions. As a result, the literature has been dominated by a single predominant perspective, which
does not fully represent the available data or perspectives of front-line clinicians and researchers alike. As researchers and clinicians will be increasingly focused on this topic in light of the changes to DSM-5 - together with the dearth of current objective available information - this book will
be a timely addition to the literature in guiding clinicians in advances in OCRDs that will impact their practice. Third, a number of conditions outside the OCRD chapter in DSM-5 are often proposed as related to OCD (e.g., misophonia).

Organized by three of the most prolific scholars from the field of obsessive-compulsive and related disorders, this paragon of knowledge brings together basic concepts and complex problems into an undisputable masterpiece. It is an essential item in the bookshelf of any mental health clinician."-Prof. Leonardo F Fontenelle, MD, PhD, Federal University of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, Monash University, Australia
Dr. Storch and colleagues and all of the chapter authors have given us an amazing overview of the relationship OCD has to other conditions, how it is best treated outside of the standard one-on-one session, and what we have to look forward to in the future of OCD and Related Disorders Care.This book is a welcome addition to the library of anyone treating OCD and Related Disorders, and will likely be dog-eared from continued use as a reference both in and out ofsessions."-Patrick B. McGrath, PhD, Head of Clinical Services, NOCD
This is an exceptional and much-needed compilation, compulsory for anyone wishing to keep abreast of the most recent advances in the field of OCD and related disorders. The authors successfully synthesize emerging research and concepts into practical treatment implications and recommendations, no small feat given the complexity of the data and the disorders."-Rachel A. Davis, MD, Associate Professor of Psychiatry and Vice Chair for Clinical Affairs, MedicalDirector, OCD and Neuromodulation Programs, University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus
Complexity is part and parcel of the clinical expression of OCD and related disorders. This text is a must read for clinicians, researchers and students alike who will work with these patients in practice or in research settings and presents latest innovations in treatment science and practice. Storch, Abramowitz and McKay, world leading authorities in the field of OCRDs, have compiled the most comprehensive volume to date on this topic, delivering novel, practicalsolutions to complex clinical issues."-Lara J. Farrell, PhD, Associate Professor, School of Applied Psychology, Griffith University, Australia
As a clinician who specializes in the treatment of OCD and related disorders, I often feel as if I am one unanswered question away from dramatically reducing someone's suffering. People with these conditions rarely fit perfectly into one simple category for which a manual would spell out the whole treatment approach. Storch, Abramowitz, and McKay, to whom I have grown accustomed turning to for answers, have pulled together the most comprehensive collection ofstudies possible in Complexities in Obsessive Compulsive and Related Disorders. This will be the first place I look when I think 'what about...?' and it will be required reading for anyone I train."-Jon Hershfield, MFT, Director of the Center for OCD and Anxiety at Sheppard Pratt
Storch, Abramowitz, and McKay have assembled an all-star cast to tackle this subject. Clinicians take note, this is not an ivory tower compilation intended only for scientific investigators. This book provides highly useful clinical information that can inform the implementation of treatment. Descendants of Copernicus may someday discover OCD is not the center of the OCRD universe, but, for now, it provides a practical theme for a book that will enlighten readersabout clinical conditions the editors rightly contend have been 'misunderstood, misdiagnosed, and mistreated.'"-C. Alec Pollard, PhD, Director, Center for OCD & Anxiety-Related Disorders, Saint Louis Behavioral Medicine Institute, Professor Emeritus of Family and Community Medicine, Saint LouisUniversity School of Medicine
For a clinician with extensive experience in treating complex cases of OCD, this book is a treat. It offers a timely and indispensable road map for the complex and changing landscape of OCRD and its borderlands. Offering new insight for experienced clinicians and a comprehensive overview for researchers and students at once is simply brilliant."-Bernhard Weidle, MD, PhD, Norwegian University of Science and Technology
Storch, Abramowitz and McKay have teamed up with a host of excellent clinical researchers to assemble a truly comprehensive collection of chapters that explain OCD and multiple related disorders. The authors do a fine job of pointing out the similarities and differences among these debilitating conditions and pointing to the clinical implications of the research findings. Well done!"-Gail Steketee, PhD, Professor and Dean Emerita, Boston University
A much-needed and invaluable compendium that expertly fills a gap in the literature. Unique and impressive in its scope, this one-stop reference guide provides excellent coverage of key issues, nuances and challenges in a murky field of complex conditions. A 'must-have' for the clinician's bookshelf."-Aureen Pinto Wagner, PhD, Director, The Anxiety Wellness Center, Cary, NC
This is a must-have resource for any clinician, researcher, educator, and trainee working with Obsessive Compulsive or related disorders (OCRDs). Authored by a who's who of leading authorities, this book brings much needed clarity to the DSM-5 conceptualization of OCRDs through careful description of the unique and overlapping clinical features and highly pragmatic assessment and treatment guidelines for over a dozen, often poorly understood, yet surprisinglycommon, OCD-related clinical presentations, including hoarding, body dysmorphia, hairpulling, skinpicking, sensory intolerance, Tourette's disorder, as well as OCD complicated by trauma, substance use, and autism."-John Piacentini, PhD, ABPP, Director, UCLA Child OCD, Anxiety and Tic Disorders Program andCenter for Child Anxiety, Resilience, Education and Support (CARES)
Hurrah! The formidable trio of Storch, Abramowitz and McKay have done it again! This book provides an engaging up-to-date resource by leading global experts on Obsessive-Compulsive and Related Disorders. It seamlessly incorporates advances in science that inform best practices for assessment and management of these disorders. With pearls of wisdom throughout, this book deserves to be front and center in bookshelves of everyone working with OCRD."-S. Evelyn Stewart,MD, Professor of Psychiatry, University of British Columbia, Scientific & Clinical Advisory Board Member, International OCD Foundation, Founding Director- British Columbia Children's Hospital Provincial OCD Program
