Although current cognitive-behavioral models have highlighted a central role of dysfunctional “obsessive beliefs” about threat, responsibility, uncertainty, perfectionism, importance and control of thoughts in the development of obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), empirical evidence in support of this notion has been inconsistent. The present investigation further examines the association between obsessive beliefs and OCD symptoms among nonclinical (Study 1) and clinical samples (Study 2…

Although current cognitive–behavioral models suggest that maladaptive “obsessive beliefs” about threat, responsibility, uncertainty, perfectionism, importance, and control of thoughts contributes to
Assessment of obsessive beliefs in individuals with obsessive-compulsive disorder in comparison to healthy sample
Cognitive models of obsessive–compulsive disorder (OCD) suggested that dysfunctional beliefs have important role in the etiology and maintenance of this disorder. However, empirical evidence in

Although there are several studies in the literature assessing the role of dysfunctional “obsessive beliefs” in the development of obsessive-compulsive (OC) symptoms, little is known about the
Predictive Values of Obsessive Beliefs and Metacognitions in OCD Symptom Dimensions
Objective: The cognitive model explains the obsessive-compulsive symptoms with dysfunctional beliefs (i.e., beliefs about responsibility, perfectionism). In contrast, the metacognitive model gives
An Evaluation of Obsessive Beliefs as Predictors of Performance on In Vivo Assessments of Obsessive–Compulsive Symptoms
Research on the contribution of obsessive beliefs to specific subtypes of obsessive–compulsive disorder (OCD) has been limited to the use of self-report measures. The current investigation used in
Thought-Action Fusion as Predictors of Obsessive-Compulsive Symptom Dimensions
TLDR
Supporting evidence is provided that the three TAF subcomponents may be differently associated with certain OC symptom dimensions, and a dimensional approach may complement typical symptom-oriented OC measures.
Perfectionism dimensions as predictors of symptom dimensions of obsessive-compulsive disorder.
TLDR
Evidence is provided for the unique relationships between OCD symptoms and perfectionism dimensions that encourage a movement toward greater phenotypic specificity within existing models of OCD.
Not just thinking, but believing: Obsessive beliefs and domains of cognitive fusion in the prediction of OCD symptom dimensions.
TLDR
Findings provide additional support for existing cognitive-behavioral models of OCD across symptom dimensions, with the exception of contamination symptoms, and suggest that the believability of thoughts and feelings about negative evaluation adds to the explanation of symmetry symptoms.

TLDR
Results indicated that, although OCD patients differed from their non-clinical counterparts on all of the OBSI-R subscales, no evidence of OCD-specificity emerged for any of the belief domains measured, as the OCD subjects did not differ from the other two clinical groups of patients.
