Hi Bob,
I have experience in working with people constructed by the medical system as
having "obsessive compulsive disorder". In the system for which I work I have
to use CBT. I do however have some ideas about PCP approaches, but no
There may be some. The ideas focus around predictability and conducting the
same experiments.

Does anyone have experience in working with people preoccupied with their
thoughts, i.e., obsessively so. I would be interested to hear about PCP
approaches to such problems or references?
