"We're lousy at recognizing when our normal coping mechanisms aren't working. Our response is usually to do it five times more, instead of thinking, maybe it's time to try something new."

~ Robert Sapolsky


"For the overcontrolled individual, their motto is “When in doubt, apply more self-control,” irrespective of circumstances or potential consequences.Overcontrolled coping persists because it gets rewarded (or reinforced), at least occasionally."

~ Thomas R. Lynch

To conclude, myMCT is a promising novel program targeting common cognitive biases in OCD. Whereas those biases identified by the Obsessive Compulsive Cognitions Working Group are at its core, the program additionally incorporates other techniques (association splitting, detached mindfulness). It may not only serve as a self-help e-book, but its exercises, diagrams, and illustrations could also facilitate planning and performing psychotherapies, especially in view of increasing reports about a large number of therapists not adhering to standard therapy guidelines.

For patients dealing with obsessive negative thoughts for which they seek reassurance from their family members or peers, it can be very helpful to teach them how to interact with their subconscious through hypnosis. Patients can then be encouraged to ask themselves for reassurance rather than relying on others. For example, a boy who consistently asks his mother whether he will become sick can learn to calm himself by hearing reassurance from his subconscious.
