It is estimated that approximately 2-5% of the general public suffer from trichotillomania and approximately 5% from skin picking. Unfortunately, very few health and mental health professionals are educated and trained about effective treatment for these Body Focused Repetitive Disorders.
Body-focused repetitive behavior (BFRB) is a term used to describe a complex group of disorders that cause people to repeatedly touch and damage their hair and body. BFRB’s include hair pulling, skin picking, and nail biting.
