Purely OCD

OCD and ”Urges”

March 8, 2022

On today’s episode of the #purelyocd podcast, Kelley Franke, LMFT, and Lauren Rosen, LMFT, are joined by the wonderful Catherine Benfield!


The three discuss Catherine’s recent article (with an assist credit to Kelley) about urges in the context of OCD. Some questions they cover include:

1. What is an obsessive urge?

2. How can we practice ERP in the face of obsessive urges?

3. What is the role of accepting uncertainty with urges?

There’s specific mention of #postpartumocd #harmocd #soocd (formerly #hocd) and #relationshipocd. This content could also be applied to #pocd. We hope you find a little hope in this open conversation of what it’s like to live with and recover from this disorder.
