Relationships between obsessive-compulsive symptoms and beliefs identified as relevant to obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) are investigated among university students and a small clinical sample. One hundred and fifty-four participants completed measures of OCD-related beliefs, OCD symptoms, and anxiety and depression symptoms. Results showed that belief domains were strongly interrelated and were not sufficiently separate to use individually in further analysis. The summed obsessive beliefs score was significantly correlated with all measured obsessional symptom subtypes, after controlling for anxiety and depression. Possible explanations and clinical implications of the results are discussed. Copyright (C) 2004 John Wiley Sons, Ltd.
