Does your high school student pull out her hair, eyelashes, or eyebrows leaving bald spots?
Are you a college student who struggles so much to stop picking your skin that you often make it look worse?
Do you or your teen feel ashamed, embarrassed, and frustrated by these repetitive behaviors?
If so, you are not alone. 1 in 20 people suffer from a body-focused repetitive behavior (BFRB) like skin picking or hair pulling. Most have tried so many things to stop but nothing works.
This group is the absolute best way to get you (or your teen) to:
This 11-week online group combines all of the evidence-based approaches to treating BFRBs, including mindfulness, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), the comprehensive behavioral treatment for BFRBs (ComB), habit reversal training (HRT), and self-compassion. Its delivery in a small group format makes it much more effective than individual therapy due to the support and accountability that is gained from peers who are going through the treatment together.
Group sessions will be structured around a different topic each week, and will consist of some didactic and experiential exercises, as well as setting of weekly goals and then checking in on progress towards those goals each week. Parents or other support people will be invited to attend the second session on December 7th to discuss how to best support the BFRB sufferer throughout treatment and beyond.
To register, please complete this form https://forms.gle/Bdkjs8zcknkBkDzb8 and then one of the group leaders will contact you to set up a group screening appointment.
