We hope you’re enjoying our KeyWords emails! Here is some additional information about our Four Keys Framework:
The good news about OCD treatment is that it works. The bad news? Well, this treatment process — exposure and response prevention (ERP) — is tough. Really, really tough. Getting and staying motivated is essential. And that’s where our Four Keys Motivational Framework fits in.
We like to think of The Four Keys as a wrapper for ERP — that is, a package of “before, during, and after” strategies for making the most of the OCD treatment/recovery process. Above is a diagram of how all this works, and below is a quick overview of The Four Keys.
THE FOUR KEYS:
Key-1: AAA Attitude – Cultivate an OCD-Busting Attitude of Abundance, Appreciation & Authenticity
Key-2: Resolve – Maintain Perspective Even in the Throes of OCD Challenges
Key-3: Greater Good – Choose Purpose & Service (your Greater Good) over Fear and Doubt (your OCD)
Key-4: Surrender – Let Go of What OCD Would Like You to Think You Can Control
To help you put all this together, we’ve created a video e-course called Thriving with OCD: Four Keys Out When Locked in Doubt, and we’d love to share it with you. Check out our introduction video, and if you’d like to learn more, we hope you’ll enroll in the course!
