Obsessive Compulsive Disorder causes in many cases, severe disability. There is a dearth of reliable tools that diagnose difficult cases of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder accurately, particularly those helpful in differentiating it from schizophrenia and depression. Obsessive Style Index was developed by Exner group (1990) with the purpose of diagnosing Obsessive Compulsive Disorder patients accurately. Very little literature is available and probably none from India, regarding the validity of this index. So this research will be an attempt on this path. The aim of the study was to study the socio-demographic profile of the patients with Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, to see the clinical profile of the patients with Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, To see the significance of Obsessive Style Index (OBS) in diagnosing the Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder patients and To see the relation in severity of Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder on OBS index. A sample of 30 patients (male&female), diagnosed clinically as having OCD by psychiatrists on the basis of ICD-10 diagnostic criteria for research, were selected from out-patient department of the Post Graduate Institute of behavioural and Medical Sciences, Raipur (C.G.). The major thrust of the present study was to see the significance of Obsessive Style Index (OBS) in diagnosing the Obsessive- Compulsive Disorder patients and to see the relation in severity of Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder on OBS index. In essence, the present study highlights the obsessive style index (OBS) needs to be modified if it is to be used to identity the cases of obsessive compulsive disorder in our Indian population or some other measure should be used.

Abstract


Obsessive Compulsive Disorder causes in many cases, severe disability. There is a dearth of reliable tools that diagnose difficult cases of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder accurately, particularly those helpful in differentiating it from schizophrenia and depression. Obsessive Style Index was developed by Exner group (1990) with the purpose of diagnosing Obsessive Compulsive Disorder patients accurately. Very little literature is available and probably none from India, regarding the validity of this index. So this research will be an attempt on this path. The aim of the study was to study the socio-demographic profile of the patients with Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, to see the clinical profile of the patients with Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, To see the significance of Obsessive Style Index (OBS) in diagnosing the Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder patients and To see the relation in severity of Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder on OBS index. A sample of 30 patients (male&female), diagnosed clinically as having OCD by psychiatrists on the basis of ICD-10 diagnostic criteria for research, were selected from out-patient department of the Post Graduate Institute of behavioural and Medical Sciences, Raipur (C.G.). The major thrust of the present study was to see the significance of Obsessive Style Index (OBS) in diagnosing the Obsessive- Compulsive Disorder patients and to see the relation in severity of Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder on OBS index. In essence, the present study highlights the obsessive style index (OBS) needs to be modified if it is to be used to identity the cases of obsessive compulsive disorder in our Indian population or some other measure should be used.
