Episode #37 Relationship OCD:  Moving Beyond Doubt, Anxiety, and Fear of Commitment in Romantic Relationships
Do you have a client who seems to be continually questioning their love for their partner? Obsessed with determining if their partner truly loves them despite an overwhelming amount of evidence? If so, they could be suffering from Relationship Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (ROCD). Author and private practice owner Sheva Rajee, MFT, offers insight into the maladaptive thought patterns of ROCD, providing practical treatment direction easily applied to this often unfamiliar disorder.

Learning Objectives

  1. Define the concept of Relationship Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (ROCD)
  2. Explore how an individual’s views on romance and finding “The One” can trigger anxiety and distress
  3. Describe the difference between ego syntonic and ego dystonic
  4. Identify a DSM diagnosis for an individual struggling with obsessive thought related to their intimate relationship(s)
