Research Request: Do you live with someone who has OCD, or have OCD yourself?  

Do you live with someone who has OCD, or have OCD yourself?        

Trainee Clinical Psychologists Paul Watson and Jade Ingram, from Newcastle University are looking for people with OCD and their family members to take part in an online research study about why family members of people with OCD help out their relatives with their OCD behaviours (sometimes called ‘accommodation’). They are looking for people aged 18 or over to participate. 

Family members may help out their relatives with OCD in a number of ways including taking part in rituals and compulsions, helping relatives to avoid their OCD triggers and providing reassurance about OCD fears and beliefs. Research has found that it is very common for relatives of those with OCD to help out with their relative’s symptoms.

Paul and Jade are interested to find out more about your experiences of this helping behaviour and hope that this project will help us to understand more about family accommodation in OCD. It will help develop and contribute to further research into the assessment and treatment of OCD.

We are very keen to understand more from the perspectives of both those with OCD and their family members. Further details are provided within our study about how you can also invite your relative to take part.
