Psychiatry Advisor Informational Page on Trichotillomania
I’ve been working with trichotillomania (i.e., hair pulling) for several years now and am always happy to see this understudied problem receive more press.
I recently came across a useful informational page on trichotillomania on the Psychiatry Advisor website. The page provides concise, up-to-date info on “trich,” including behavioral and pharmacological treatment, and diagnostic considerations. It is a great reference for anyone new to trichotillomania.
You can check it out here.
