What are BFRBs (Body Focused Repetitive Behaviors)?
Treatment For BFRBs
BFRB is a general term that refers to any repetitive self-grooming behavior (pulling, picking, biting or scraping of the hair, skin or nails) that results in damage to the body. This disorder is actually very common and many do not know how to stop these behaviors. I take you through what you need to know to stop these behaviors and go through a demonstration of what a BFRB is.
Some examples are:
►Trichotillomania (hair pulling)
►Excoriation Disorder (skin picking) - Dermatillomania
►Onychophagia (nail biting)
One of the best treatments for this is called the comprehensive treatment model for BFRBs (ComB).
