Overcoming Harm OCD with Jon Hershfield

Harm OCD Obsessive Compulsive Disorder Jon Hershfield CBT ERP Anxiety Depression Obsessions Exposure CBT Tools Unwanted Violent Thoughts Your Anxiety Toolkit Podcast Kimberley Quinlan

Welcome back to another episode of Your Anxiety Toolkit Podcast.  Today we have a special guest, Jon Hershfield, LMFT.  Jon has been on the show already and is a favorite among the CBT School-ers.

Today, Jon and I talk about how to manage specific obsessions related to violence and physical harm.  In OCD terms, we call it Harm Obsessions or Harm OCD (if you meet the requirements for a diagnosis of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder or OCD).

In this episode, Jon answers some important questions such as: 

  • Does everyone have Harm Obsessions, thoughts, impulses or images? 
  • Why do these Harm Obsessions bother some people and not others? 
  • What is the difference between a Harm OCD  and having thoughts about harm? 
  • Are people with Harm OCD any different than those who have other types of OCD? 
  • How do we treat Harm OCD? 

This was such a fun episode and I really hope it helps those with harm obsessions, thoughts, images, impulses, and urges (Harm OCD).

Fore more information on Jon's latest book, Overcoming Harm OCD: Mindfulness and CBT Tools for Coping with Unwanted Violent Thoughts, click HERE.
