About the Series

Have you ever heard the expression, “that’s so OCD”? According to clinical psychologist Dr. Ramani Durvasula, the personality disorder OCPD (obsessive-compulsive personality disorder) is the condition people are actually but unknowingly referring to when they use this phrase. OCPD is the most common personality disorder, yet most people either mistake it for the more commonly-known condition OCD, or don’t realize it’s a disorder at all.

In this enlightening series, Dr. Ramani breaks down how OCPD is different than OCD, how to spot its unique symptoms, how to convince someone showing those signs to go see a professional, and how to pursue short- and long-term treatment. You’ll walk away with actionable strategies on how to be the best supporter possible to someone with OCPD.

“OCPD - without insight, without self-reflection that these patterns are problems, you’re going to go nowhere fast.”
