The TLC Trichotillomania Conference is an annual meeting up of suffers of BFRBs and their families. The event is open to people of all ages and aims to instill a feeling of hope as well as a sense of community in those suffering from these disorders. Educational workshops are presented aiming to give people the tools they need to tackle their disorder. Numerous talks are given – including one by Annette Pasternak, who's part of our online counseling service – that are aimed at patients, researchers, and treatment professionals. The best part of the conference is the warm, supportive, all-inclusive environment of patients and clinicians that it provides. Of particular note are the discussions of the latest research findings and outlines of the most effective and state-of-the-art treatment strategies. The stories of real-life recovery are also not to be missed.
The Trich.org Trichotillomania Conference is open to anybody with an interest in BFRBs. Those with pulling, picking, and other compulsive behaviors are all encouraged to attend. The same goes for their families and loved ones as well as clinicians looking to improve their treatment strategies. The conference is open to people of all ages although special programs and workshops are offered for children and teens as well as their parents.
