Trichotillomania (or Hair Pulling Disorder) is a little understood disorder which now falls under Obsessive-Compulsive and related disorders. Although rare, clinicians are likely to encounter this condition at some point in their practice. Due to high degree of shame associated with the disorder and its symptoms, many people do not outwardly acknowledge their struggle. Instead they will seek assistance for more general challenges such as anxiety or obsessive-compulsive disorder.
This presentation will focus helping clinicians understand the symptomology and research related to this condition. Specifically, clinicians will learn of the changes made with the new release of the DSM-V, including differential diagnosis. Through the use of art therapy, clinicians will be given insight into what it is like to struggle with the condition as well as to how to help a potential client process the challenge of resisting the urge to pull their hair. Clinicians will learn various practical interventions that they can readily utilize in practice to assist clients in decreasing hair pulling behaviors.
