Psychologist Sarah Sproson discusses how the cause of obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) can link back to childhood, especially if it involved an environment where the person felt a lack of control.

I think the causes of OCD can be linked back to early experience. It’s not uncommon for people with this disorder to have grown up in an environment with a very anxious parent or caregiver. It may also be the case that those people have grown up in an environment where they have felt very unsafe or as though they have very little control.
