Multimodal treatment of a case of obsessive-compulsive neurosis.


Journal Article

A severe incapacitating case of obsessive-compulsive neurosis was treated in hospital with an intense multimodal approach including individual, conjoint marital, and group psychotherapy, behavioral therapy, occupational and recreational therapy, milieu therapy, and medications.
