Are You Struggling With Trichotillomania?
Available Treatment Options
Therapist interventions for Trichotillomania include cognitive and behavioral therapies, such as creating an awareness of triggers that lead to hair pulling and replacing that urge with another more healthy behavior.
Therapy may also include mindfulness techniques, such as breathing, journaling, or meditation to decrease stress. Group therapy may also be effective for some people, as shame and embarrassment often surround the disorder. Being in a group setting with people who understand what the person is going through can be therapeutic.
