In brief: Clinical Exam
As with many psychiatric disorders, obsessive-compulsive disorder (ocd) is diagnosed by a comprehensive clinical examination.
A patient must meet criteria set forth in the diagnostic & statistic manual or the icd-9 manual. The primary symptoms are obsessions or compulsions that are not due to medical illness or drug use and they cause major distress or interfere with everyday life activities.

In brief: OCD
OCD is obsessive compulsive disorder, comprised of obsessions (repeating unwanted thoughts) and compulsions (ritualistic behaviors to help deal with those thoughts) such as washing hands repeatedly, constantly cleaning, checking locks, and other similar behaviors.
Often the emotions behind OCD are based in fear and/or anger that is unresolved and even unverbalized. Testing could include the MMPI-2
