What is the Relationship Between Fear of Self, Self Ambivalence and Obsessive Compulsive Symptomatology? A Systematic Literature Review.

Clin Psychol Psychother. 2020 May 15;: Authors: Godwin TL, Godwin HJ, Simonds LM Abstract Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) is one of the most debilitating health conditions in the world. There has been a vast amount of research into factors that increase the likelihood of developing OCD and there are several explanatory models. Current cognitive models of OCD can be split into appraisal-based and self-doubt models. To date, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy for OCD (grounded in appraisal-based models) is the recommended treatment approach, and research into the importance of self-doubt beliefs has been somewhat neglected. This paper therefore aims to consolidate current research, utilising a systematic review approach, to establish the relationship between fear of self, self-ambivalence and obsessive-compulsive symptomology. A systematic search was conducted based on inclusion criteria identified for this review. Papers were then individually appraised for quality and key data extracted from each paper. A total of 11 studies were included in the final sample. Fear of self and self-ambivalence were both consistently found to be significant predictors of OC symptomatology. In particular, research suggests that there is a strong link between self-doubt beliefs and obsessions and obsessional beliefs related to OCD. Limitation...

CONCLUSION: The worldwide prevalence of gaming disorder appears to be comparable to obsessive-compulsive disorder and some substance-related addictions, but lower than compulsive buying and higher than problem gambling. Gaming disorder prevalence rates appear to be inflated by methodological characteristics, particularly measurement and sampling issues. PMID: 33028074 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

For over 10 years, electrical stimulation within the limbic corticosubcortical network has been evaluated for treating patients with severe obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) (1). High-frequency deep brain stimulation (DBS) of various targets has been tested, including the anteromedial part of the subthalamic nucleus (amSTN), nucleus accumbens (NAc), ventral capsule/ventral striatum, anterior limb of the internal capsule, bed nucleus of the stria terminalis, and inferior thalamic peduncle (1). So far, published data do not support superiority of any particular target, with a mean decrease of 45% in OCD severity for whiche...
