Practitioners working with OCD sufferers are sometimes presented with complicated issues that make it difficult to see significant progress within a client’s treatment. Being skilled at recognizing when treatment is at a standstill is important in and of itself. It is impossible to predict all of the problems that can arise, but being mindful of common glitches can support therapists in recognizing the barriers that sometimes make clients and therapists feel stuck. Discord within a client’s sense of self, fear, lack of trust, time management, family dynamics, and comorbidities are some of the common themes therapists see come up for their clients. There are also matters related to logistics and ethics that therapists may face. This chapter includes illustrations of real-life situations that therapists can take note of, as well as suggestions on how to address the obstacles to better support clients in reaching their goals for OCD wellness. Also included is a list of books, articles, and other resources.
