OCD in the Age of #MeToo, revisited

By Lynne Gots, posted on June 1st, 2019.

In the wake of the #MeToo movement, I wrote a post last year about the spate of men I was seeing in my practice who worried about being perpetrators of sexual assault.

As the piece resonated with so many people, I decided to revise the original for the Anxiety and Depression Association of America website.
