Contemporary opinions which are prevailing in psychiatry handle the obsessive compulsive disorder from a positivist-empiricist point of view and such attitudes cause an inconsistent and unintegrated vista about the com-piling information concerned with the disorder. The importance of the culture-sensitive approaches about OCD is being neglected in contemporary researches and clinical practices. It can be asserted that, to establish a working cooperation between psychiatry and humanities, as done before with neuroscience, physiology, biochemistry and pharmacology, will procreate quite effective results in the field of OCD research. Embracement of the culture-sensitive approach while handling the OCD will provide momentous contributions, not only for the endeavors about understanding the disorder entirely, but also for the treatment of the disorder.
