Jimwell is exactly right in saying that obsessions and compulsions will simply morph into something else when these treatment approaches are used

No, it's the opposite, and the article is 100% correct. You have to get rid of the obsessive behavior. What you're saying makes no sense. If you try to fix every trigger, your obsessive behavior is going to remain. But, if you fix your obsessive behavior, the trigger will not matter. Every person I have ever talked to who has problems with ERP were doing something incorrect. ERP takes awhile to learn, and a lot of doctors are bad at teaching it. I've had severe OCD since I was born and wasted so much time focusing on my triggers. I am now 95% better using ERP alone.
