Join Judy DeKuehn, M.Ed., LPC, as she presents an intriguing overview of the latest scientific findings in the field of neurobiology, and the implications of these findings for treatment in trichotillomania (TTM), skin picking and nail biting. New data on genetics, animal modeling, and cognitive behavioral therapy advances will be discussed. She will provide key tools for recovery and speak on advances in research and treatment of trichotillomania and related problems. Learn specific exercises and techniques designed to strengthen awareness and control these behaviors. She will discuss medication issues as well as some exciting news about common over-the-counter substances which have been empirically supported to be helpful in reducing urges to pick, bite or pull.

Information on "intentional awareness" or mindfulness as a core component of newer forms of Cognitive Behavioral Therapies -- such as Dialectical Behavior therapy (DBT) and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), will be presented. Both DBT and ACT have been found helpful for compulsive hair pulling.
