In preparation for the BTTI, please read at least one of the books listed below. There are other informative books about OCD not included on this list; however, the focus of this list is on manuals and books written for professionals with detailed information on the fundamental steps of treating OCD. The list is divided into adult and child references. If your practice includes both age groups, you might want to read one book from each list. All of these books can be found and purchased on Amazon (except where otherwise noted).
