New research on skin picking in the UK

We've been contacted by Clarabella, an undergraduate student from St. Mary's University College, England. She carries out a study on compulsive skin picking, supervised by Dr. Tig Calvert. She asked us to post about her study and bring in as much participants as possible. So if you can spare a few minutes of your time, this would be very helpful.

It's a study aimed at discovering the various emotional "functions" this disorder presumably fulfills.

Clarabella promised to share the results and conclusions of her study with, so stay tuned (expected in April 2011).
