Introduction: It is known that dysfunctional beliefs are important in the onset and maintenance of symptoms of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) according to the cognitive model of OCD. OCD patients with higher obsessive beliefs would be expected to have greater deficits in cognitive flexibility. In this study, we aimed to examine the relationship between obsessive belief levels and cognitive flexibility in OCD patients.
