The maturing of the field in the treatment of obsessional and unwanted thoughts

Here is an excellent podcast called "Dark Thoughts" by NPR on the cutting-edge treatment of anxious or disturbing thoughts. The story involves a man with OCD with "harming" obsessions who gains freedom with a combination of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (the 2nd historical wave of Psychotherapy) and mindfulness-based therapy including Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (the latest 3rd wave). It's a good demonstration of how I help clients with OCD and various kinds of obsessional thinking, ruminations and worry.
