Obsessive Compulsive Treatment Efficiency Trial (OCTET)

Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) is a common problem. New treatment guidelines recommend that people with OCD receive Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), which may be delivered via a self-help approach. However it is not known which method of self-help is most useful, or how useful they are compared to usual care. In this study we will conduct a randomised trial looking at the clinical and cost effectiveness of two self-help treatments (Guided Self-Help and Computerised CBT) compared to a waiting list control for people with OCD.
