Well, this question isn't very specific so I have a few other questions to ask first: Are you wanting ways to treat OCD? Have you (or a child, etc.) been diagnosed with OCD by a trained professional (Psychologist, psychiatrist, MD)? Obsessive Compulsive Disorder is a serious psychiatric disorder on the anxiety continuum. In brief, and very simplistically, a person has obsessive thoughts ("I'm poisoned," "I left the door unlocked.") and they initiate a compulsive behavior in response (wash hands, check the front door). Treatment is often twofold: 1) medication from a psychiatrist or other MD, and 2) cognitive behavioral therapy to assist in interrrupting the thoughts and behaviors. Some good books to help familiarize yourself with the symptoms and the treatment might be "Brainlock" and "The Boy Who Couldn't Stop Washing." It is helpful for the person suffering from OCD to learn to recognize the obsessive thoughts as part of the illness and "not accurate." In that way, they can then redirect their thinking and not have to respond with the compulsion.
There is some link between schizophrenia and obsessive-compulsive disorder. Among schizophrenic patients, 7.8 to 26 percent of them (depending on the study) meet the criteria for obsessive-compulsive disorder. However, not enough research has been done on this for us to know why the rate is so high.
