CBT is an umbrella term for a number of different approaches to psychotherapy, all dealing with dysfunctional thinking patterns and behaviors and emotional suffering related to them. Several types of CBT have been tested and shown to be effective for excoriation (skin picking) disorder, among them habit reversal training (HRT) and acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) that this program is based on.

HRT is a behavioral intervention that targets the habitual aspects of skin picking and helps you substitute it with healthier behaviors, whereas ACT teaches a different way of relating to internal, private experiences, helping clients develop a healthier approach to their emotions. These two interventions combined target the problematic behaviors as well as their emotional underpinning.

After you sign up and we match you with a therapist, your therapist will create a unique digital treatment program for you based on your specific case. The communication with your therapist will be text-based, and you will have different discussions on various topics pertaining to the treatment process. You can message your therapist at any time and without the need for scheduling through our secure messaging system.

All prospective clients ages 15 and up can sign up for our adult program. 

If you have a child struggling with compulsive skin picking and your child is under the age of 13, we recommend that you join our program for parents

For clients ages 14 and 15, we recommend that you subscribe for our adult program, but in this case we recommend that parents sign up for our program for parents at the same time. In this case, we are offering a 50% discount for parents’ subscription.
