Written by licensed clinical psychologists, this integrative behavioral therapy (IBT) approach is rooted in behavioral and cognitive psychology, utilizing CBT, ACT, DBT and habit reversal training, and is applicable to all BFRBs, including nail biting, hair pulling, and skin picking. Make your way through the workbook at your own pace, with the authors' compassionate guidance, and return to it as often as needed.

    ...A game changer in the BFRB community. This book is well written, a joy to read. It opens an insightful dialogue not just with people living and/or recovering from BFRB but, delves deeply into the daily internal and external challenges that potentially can affect their internal-external world-view of life. The strength of this book is its ability to take the sufferer through meaningful exercises to affirm and confirm that living with BRFB is only one facet of who they really are! The book clearly helps them, through their BRFB journey and to love themselves. It will be a great navigation tool through the acceptance process. Moreover, it serves as a foundational guide for families and friends to understand their loved one's BFRB experience.
