What is Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)?

“A condition marked by repeated and lengthy (at least one hour per day) immersion in obsessions, compulsions, or both” (Lilienfeld #581).

Obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) defined by the International OCD Foundation, is a mental health disorder that affects people of all ages and walks of life, and occurs when a person gets caught in a cycle of obsessions and compulsions.


Obsessions are unwanted, intrusive thoughts, images, or urges that trigger intensely distressing feelings. Compulsions are behaviors an individual engages in to attempt to get rid of the obsessions and/or decrease distress.


OCD causes extreme impairments on the individuals functioning. While the OCD community has begun to identify different sub types of OCD, anything can be OCD if it follows the OCD cycle of obsession-increased anxiety- compulsion (to decrease anxiety)...then repeat the cycle.
