Introducing my new blog, FredTalks, where the goal is to help you tame OCD and reclaim your life! This blog is different from my Aha! Moments and Beyond the Doubt Psychology Today blogs, in that the posts are:
- Shorter so you can read them in a few minutes
- Action-focused on tips & tricks you can try to help you tame your OCD
- Based on stories from Is Fred in the Refrigerator? Taming OCD and Reclaiming My Life, and for each post, I’ll identify the pages in Fred where you can read a story illustrating the concept and/or where you can check out Dr. Reid Wilson’s expert guidance on the topic in Fred’s Afterword.
If you’d like to receive notifications of new FredTalks, sign up for my Shoulders Back! newsletter, and you’ll receive OCD-taming tips & resources delivered every month to your inbox.
Here’s to taming OCD and reclaiming your life!
