For many of us, perfectionism can bring life's most desired rewards. But when the obsessive need for perfection and control gets in the way of our professional and emotional lives, the cost becomes too high. Although many of us appear cool and confident on the outside, inside we are in emotional turmoil, trying to satisfy everyone, attempting to direct the future, and feeling that we are failing. In TOO PERFECT, Dr. Allan Mallinger draws on twenty years of research and observations from his private practice to show how perfectionism can sap energy, complicate even the simplest decisions, and take the enjoyment out of life. For workaholics or neat freaks, for anyone who fears change or making mistakes, needs rigid rules, is excessively frugal or obstinate, TOO PERFECT offers revealing self-tests, fascinating case histories, and practical strategies to help us overcome obsessiveness and reclaim our right to happiness.

A PERSONAL MESSAGE to one who suspects she or he has, or is suspected by others of having, OCPD: Dear Reader and new-found Friend, Congratulations!By your willingness and open-mindedness to explore, reflect upon, and consider the validity of the vital message of this book, and its possible direct application to you, you have demonstrated personal courage of a very high order. In all likelihood, you were told of (if not already given) this book by a loved one or dear friend who has your best interests at heart, and desires above all else that you lead a rich, rewarding, joyful, and fulfilling life. But, to do so it is imperative that you acquire accurate, state-of-the-art, scientific (psychologically-sound) knowledge of the condition they feel justified in believing you have. To that end, this book presents a proven program for psychological wellness directed to those individuals who suffer from this mental disability called Obsessive Compulsive Personality Disorder, or simply OCPD. To be bold and wholly truthful, it must be stated, without apology: it is a serious mental illness that wreaks havoc and creates ongoing misery in the lives of those people on the 'receiving end' of the OCPD person's dysfunctional speech and behaviors. It, also, causes untold harm and damage to the OCPD person, himself (or, herself, as the case may be). That is why this book was written. To help awaken the OCPD person to the destructiveness of their behaviors to others, but PRIMARILY TO THEMSELVES, and to facilitate the emergence of 'Insight', without which no OCPD person will ever recover. Though you may strongly feel this disorder has nothing to do with you, do yourself the favor of obtaining and studying this book if only to increase your fund of knowledge, and to know with certainty that you are, indeed, well. I counsel you not to let fear of what disquieting truths you might find about yourself deter you, or false pride, dissuade you. You may find persuasive reasons, herein, that cause you to suspect you just might have OCPD, after all. And with that knowledge will come the Power to deliver you from bondage to yourself. This compendium is a wholly unique, first-of-its-kind, self-help educational volume, workbook, program of instruction, and personal 'coach' all rolled into one. There is no book like it on the market, anywhere, today. This volume's treatment approach is that of a multi-disciplinary one, within a framework of Immersion Therapy coupled with the relatively new, highly promising, field of study known as Positive Psychology. Numerous and varied disciplines from every field of knowledge, past and present, have been drawn upon by the author to uncover the best tools and techniques, methods and strategies, known to date, that pertain to the unique challenges posed by this highly proliferating disorder. Those disciplines are: psychological and psychiatric (cognitive behavioral), medical, human potential movement, science of personal development, meditative practices, universal religious insight, poetic wisdom sources, and holistic, among others. As it will take the marshaling of all of these 'forces for good' to overcome the deeply entrenched maladaptive patterns and habits of belief, thought, and behavior that make up the mindset of the OCPD person. But, with their combined wisdom from these various sources, it is the author's sincere and earnest belief, that countless OCPD persons will find speedy relief, comfort, reassurance, deliverance, and healing, as will those persons, who by necessity or by choice, interact with them on a recurring basis. May this self-help book, truly a pioneer of its kind, lead the way for OCPD people to become empowered to 'take back their lives', abandon their self-created misery, and enable them to live in harmony and peace with themselves, and their fellow woman and man, as never before, from this point onward – into an ever-beckoning, better today, and brighter tomorrow.With Every Good Wish, The Author

A revolutionary approach to overcoming perfectionism! A recent, randomized study—published by Mindfulness Journal—shows that Present Perfect is effective as a standalone intervention. The study found that those who had read the book experienced a statistically significant reduction of self-criticalness, a result that was still maintained at a six weeks follow-up (Wimberley, Mintz, & Suh, Mindfulness, Nov. 2015). While there's no doubt that setting high standards for yourself is a good thing, you've probably already noticed that perfectionism can come at a high price. And when you take steps to try to change, it's easy to be too hard on yourself and fall into the same traps that keep you feeling stressed and disappointed. This book presents a revolutionary approach to overcoming perfectionism—a way to transform your need for precision into self-acceptance, compassion, and love for each perfectly imperfect passing moment in our lives. In Present Perfect, you'll use the Buddhist psychology of mindfulness to learn to accept the present moment in all of its ordinary perfection. This book is filled with over 150 exercises and meditations that you can practice to become more flexible toward yourself and others without losing your love of a job well done. With this compassionate approach, you'll soon be able not only to accept life as it is, but also become more accepting and forgiving of yourself and others.

This handbook examines evidence-based treatment of obsessive-compulsive and related disorders for a broad clinical audience. Focusing on both children and adults with these conditions, it discusses various manifestations of OCD (e.g., contamination, perfectionism), related conditions (e.g., hoarding, trichotillomania, and Tourette syndrome), and cases with complicating factors. Chapters describe case specifics, offer assessment guidelines, and illustrate evidence-based psychotherapy. Case examples depict real-life complexities of presentation, notably in terms of comorbid conditions and hard-to-treat subpopulations. Topical areas addressed in the Handbook include: Phenomenology, assessment, and treatment of multiple types of OCD in adults and children. Treating “not just right experiences” in children with OCD. Treating obsessive compulsive disorder in very young children. Treatment of OCD comorbid with other disorders like depression and Autism Spectrum Disorder. Treatment of OCD when presenting with complicating factors like limited insight, extreme family accommodation, and poor motivation. The Clinical Handbook of Obsessive-Compulsive and Related Disorders is an essential resource for clinicians and professionals as well as researchers, and graduate students in clinical psychology, psychiatry, social work, counseling programs, pediatrics, public health, and related disciplines.
