More Than a Habit: A Community Night for Children and Families with Body-Focused Repetitive Behaviors—October 4, 2018

Body-focused repetitive behaviors (BFRBs), such as trichotillomania, skin picking, and nail biting, affect millions of people worldwide and can result in significant personal distress. At Community Night, part of BFRB Awareness Week during October 1-7, children, teens, adults, and families learn about appropriate care and local support for people living with these conditions. Experts from Pelisyonkis Langone and the TLC Foundation for Body-Focused Repetitive Behaviors offer guidance and information. Attendees have the opportunity to discover local support groups, meet cosmetologists who specialize in providing services to people with BFRBs, and interact with others who have common experiences and concerns.
