Body Focused Repetitive Behavior (BFRB) Treatment for Children and Adolescents

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Body-Focused Repetitive Behaviors (BFRBs) affect millions of people worldwide. As many as 1 in 50 people engage in non-cosmetic hair pulling that results in significant hair loss. Other body focused behaviors, such as skin picking and nail biting, affect a greater percentage of the population resulting in scaring, infections, and sometimes plastic surgery. This workshop will provide an overview of BFRBs and will outline current research regarding children and adolescents with these disorders. The current state-of-the-art treatment for these disorders will be presented, with a focus on treatment of young people under the age of 18. Case vignettes of children at different developmental stages will illustrate how to implement treatment consistent with the needs at each level.
