Presenter and Affiliation: Nancy J. Keuthen, PhD

Body-focused repetitive behaviors (BFRBs), including hair pulling and skin picking, are receiving increasing recognition given their prevalence rates, potential medical complications and functional impact. Although empirical evidence supports CBT as the first-line intervention, these disorders can remain challenging to treat. This webinar will review existing treatment approaches and highlight ways to improve treatment efficacy.

Learning Objectives:

This webinar is designed to help you:


  • Learn about different BFRB subtypes and how to tailor treatment accordingly;
  • Understand existing challenges in the treatment of BFRBs;
  • Utilize habit reversal and stimulus control strategies to treat BFRBs;
  • Select ACT and DBT tools to enhance treatment outcome.
