Rise Above: Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) and Religious Scrupulosity

In today’s episode of Rise Above, we discuss a specific type of obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), known as religious scrupulosity, where a person becomes mentally and emotionally consumed by thoughts, doubts, and worries revolving around their spiritual life. Psychologists Julia Carbonella, PhD, and Johanna Younce, PhD, explain obsessions and compulsions associated with religious scrupulosity, how you can tell if your religious practices are healthy, and provide suggestions for how to best support a person who is struggling.
