Despite this homogeneity, there have been increasing attempts to further the understanding and treatment of OCD by specifying different subgroups. There is some evidence, for example, that the various symptoms of OCD can be mapped onto a four-factor solution, with each symptom factor being mediated by somewhat different neurobiological factors (Leckman et al, 1997). 1Symptoms of OCD. © 2000 American Psychiatric Assodation. 2Typical obsessions and consequent compulsions in OCD. 3Putative obsessive-compulsive spectrum disorders.

Finally, patients who experience guilt, shame, or lack of social support in the aftermath of traumatic events may have more difficulty in processing such experiences (Yehuda, 1999). Conclusion Some authors have argued that ‘trauma’ ultimately constitutes the final common pathway that lies at the bottom of all psychopathology. Freud, of course, reversed his early similar stance, and modern data on individual psychobiological susceptibilities suggest that these also play a crucial role in determining whether responses to trauma are characterized by resilience and growth, or by psychopathology and dysfunction.
