Moritatherapy was found by Shoma Morita in 1919 in Japan and is psychotherapy for anxiety disorders based on Eastern psychology. 2 OCDcases were illustrated to which Inpatient Morita therapy was applied after the trial of Cognitive Behavioural therapy and showed a favourable progress. Case 1 rejected exposure. Although Case 2 engaged in Cognitive Behavioural therapy, it had a side effect that his obsession intensified. Case 1 could shorten her bathing time and engaged in occupation of taking care of animals. After Case 2 engaged in works with other patients, he could live with obsession and was aware of anger towards his parents. Morita therapy is effective for OCD patients who reject exposure and who are inclined to intellectualize their emotions.
