Example text

Such clients tend to be quite upset with the perceived uncontrollability of the thought, sometimes even more so than with the particular content of the thought itself. They may act as victims of their mind while being unable to recognize that these thoughts are always arrived at through reasoning. They may exclaim, ‘I don’t understand why I have the thought. I just can’t get it out of my mind’, or ‘None of it makes any sense. ’ Imaginative Processes Another influence that may hamper awareness of the reasons behind the thought lies in various imaginative processes associated with the OCD that make it more difficult than usual to retrieve the reasoning behind the OCD.

When we have adapted the IBT programme for use in ruminative and delusional disorders, we found it useful to identify and focus on the self-theme initially in therapy and make it clear that the obsessionally feared self-identity is inferentially confused. However, when the client is immersed in more ordinary doubts, we find it more useful to begin addressing inferential confusion in separate instances and then lead up to the self-theme. Otherwise, dealing with the self-theme can appear too overwhelming and perplexing.

Another related idea is ‘lack of confidence’. People with OCD often seem to lack confidence in making decisions or undertaking actions, and may lack confidence in their own abilities to be effective. Many early experiments targeting memory and perceptual processes found lack of confidence in performance in OCD rather than deficient performance. Lack of confidence generally refers to beliefs about self-efficacy and outcome expectancies and is not related to our use of doubt here. Certainly someone who doubts their senses may subsequently engender feelings of uncertainty and lack of confidence in action.
