Book Overview

The definitive guide for those who pick or pull.
--Reid Wilson, PhD, author Stopping the Noise in Your Head


A comprehensive treatment plan grounded in evidence-based cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) to help you overcome body-focused repetitive behaviors for good

If you have body-focused repetitive behaviors (BFRB) such as hair pulling (trichotillomania) or skin picking (dermatillomania), you may feel embarrassed about seeking help. But there are proven-effective strategies you can use to overcome these behaviors and improve your overall quality of life--this book will show you how.

In this evidence-based resource, three renowned experts and clinicians offer powerful CBT skills to help you move past BFRB. You'll learn why you engage in these behaviors, and how to identify your own sensory triggers--places, things, or experiences that cause your behavior to become worse. Finally, you'll learn strategies to use when faced with these triggers, and develop your own customized plan of action for moving beyond BFRB for good.

With time, practice, and solid skills for managing stress, anxiety, urges, and other triggers, this book will help you break free from BFRB and feel more in control of your life.

   Incredibly helpful
People who suffer from skin picking and other BFRBs have so few excellent resources available to them. It takes readers on a journey to discover what triggers them and how to target specific interventions to achieve much-needed relief. Each chapter builds on the next to offer a comprehensive action plan that is comprehensible and doable. BFRBs are not easily managed without a thoughtful approach, and I highly recommend this approach. It will leave the readers feeling understood and in excellent hands. The authors are successful in their own right. Together, they offer a single voice that exudes competence, compassion and a skillful touch.

   Undercover habits
At one time or another, several members have succumbed to these self-harming habits. As described in this book, there is no simple fix. Each person needs to examine what triggers their own sessions of hair pulling or skin picking. The book offers a plan of action along with suggestions for use in various scenarios. There are also references for supporting groups and other resources.
