Compulsivity Questionnaire
We are researchers and use this questionnaire to clarify what compulsive behavior is, and how the term is used in clinical practice. Our aim is to come to a definition of compulsive behavior that can be used in research of compulsive behavior. We think that your experience and insights are crucial for this goal.


Therefore we would like to ask you some questions about compulsive behavior across disorders (e.g., OCD spectrum disorders, addictions, eating disorders)
