This workshop will review various measures and interview techniques that are useful for the effective assessment of Body-Focused Repetitive Behaviors (BFRB’s) in children and adolescents. There will be discussion regarding the new diagnostic criteria in the DSM V, as well as review of recent research findings related to these disorders. Treatment strategies will be offered and case examples will be used to reinforce the intervention information. Video clips from the documentary “Bad Hair Life” will be used to offer the patient perspective on the impact of Trichotillomania on children and adolescents. A question and answer period will be held at the end to discuss any population or case specific questions attendees may have.
