Trichotillomania (i.e. hair pulling) and dermatillomania (i.e. skin picking) disorders—also known as body-focused repetitive behaviors, or BFRBs—are seldom discussed openly. Though BFRBs are relatively common, people struggling with them feel ashamed and misunderstood. Behavioral treatment for BFRBs is available and effective. Learn how they are treated and how parents can support their children.

In this webinar, caregivers will learn:

  • What defines a BFRB: How they are diagnosed and what to know about these misunderstood childhood disorders
  • About the current functional model for understanding why people pull their hair and/or pick their skin
  • About ways parents can effectively and lovingly support their child with a BFRB
  • The current best practice treatment approaches for BFRBs
