Many people are suffering from OCPD, and it is negatively affecting their marriage, their relationships, their children and their lives. Obsessive Compulsive Personality disorder is a condition of negative perfectionism. It is a desire and a need for orderliness, control, strict guidelines, and clear procedures. OCPD generally is handed down through the family and is held to be a family value which provides stability and survival. However, the obsessiveness and compulsiveness that is characteristic of OCPD can cause great strain in relationships and reduce the quality of life for the sufferer.
In this book, I seek to challenge the core negative personality traits and needs of the OCPD sufferer. I challenge them to turn off their autopilot and try to look at the world through a different lens. I realize that it is quite difficult for a person with OCPD to challenge their own thoughts and the thoughts of their family members in order to search for greater freedom. I wish for them to slowly release their need to control and perfect everything in their life, to take a step back and to breathe.
