Abstract—This study was aimed to examine the effectiveness of cognitive analytic therapy on symptoms severity of obsessive-compulsive disorder. This was a empirical study. Twenty patients with obsessive compulsive disorder were selected by inconvenience sampling and randomly assigned to experimental and control group. Participants initially completed the Socio-demographic Questionnaire and interviewed by the Structured Clinical Interview for DSM-IV-TR Axis I Disorders. Then, the Yale-Brown Obsessive-Compulsive Scale was administered in baseline, post-treatment and follow-up. Mixed analysis of variance with repeated measures showed that symptoms severity of obsessive compulsive disorder was significantly decreased at post-treatment and three-month follow-up in the treatment group as compared to the control group (F1,18 = 15.05, P < 0.001). The interaction of intervention and factor of time resulted in decreased symptoms severity in post-treatment and follow-up (F2,36 = 22.53, P < 0.001).The group cognitive analytic therapy is an effective and longstanding therapy for symptoms management of obsessive compulsive disorder.
