In Chapter 5, we will discuss matters related to obsessive-compulsive and related disorders to include their clinical presentation, diagnostic criteria, epidemiology, comorbidity, etiology, and treatment options. Our discussion will include obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) and body dysmorphic disorder (BDD). However, it is worth noting that hoarding disorder, trichotillomania (excessive hair pulling), and excoriation disorder (excessive skin picking) were recently added to the new obsessive-compulsive and related disorders section of the DSM 5. Be sure you refer Chapters 1-3 for explanations of key terms (Chapter 1), an overview of the various models to explain psychopathology (Chapter 2), and descriptions of the various therapies (Chapter 3).
