When others (family, coworkers, friends, etc.) help a person with OCD to ritualize (for example, by purchasing toilet paper and paper towels, by completing rituals, or by waiting while s/he ritualizes, etc.). Accommodation, although usually well-intended, actually makes a person's OCD worse. Family members can be helped by a therapist to learn different ways of being supportive without helping an individual to ritualize.
