Review

From the reviews:

"Treating Trichotillomania: Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy of Hairpulling and Related Problems focuses primarily on trichotillomania (TTM) … . it is concise, well written, empirically grounded, and richly filled with clinical examples and samples of patient-therapist dialogue that clearly illustrate the various techniques. … In summary, this book is essential reading for all clinicians involved in the treatment of TTM. … Franklin and Tolin have performed a valuable clinical service by clearly showing readers how to implement this intervention along with other cognitive-behavioral interventions for TTM." (Steven Taylor, PsycCRITIQUES, Vol. 53 (11), 2008)

"This book on treating trichotillomania is a powerful addition to a continuing series on anxiety and related disorders. … Psychologists and other mental health professionals will find this valuable for their practice. Graduate students will benefit from the advanced knowledge and overall understanding of trichotillomania. … One major highlight is the emphasis on self-monitoring which is important for all psychiatric disorders. This is one of the best books available on trichotillomania, and clinicians are strongly urged to have this invaluable reference on their selves." (Nicholas Greco IV, Doody’s Review Service, August, 2009)

From the Back Cover

Trichotillomania has been described in the literature for at least a hundred years, but has only in the past decade received serious clinical attention. Although now a "higher profile" disorder, there is still scant clinical information on trichotillomania. A full-length cognitive-behavioral treatment manual, Treating Trichotillomania (TTM) fills that need. Designing the book for maximum usefulness, authors Franklin and Tolin share their considerable expertise in treating body-focused repetitive behavior disorders (not only hair-pulling but skin-picking and nail-biting as well) in an accessible, clinically valid reference.

Treating Trichotillomania carefully defines TTM, differentiating the disorder from other conditions such as OCD, reviewing the varied clinical forms it can take, and setting out its diagnostic criteria. Treatment chapters are not one-size-fits-all, but offer an evidence-based framework to help practitioners in designing the most appropriate course of treatment across the developmental spectrum, from toddlers to elders. The authors give the reader:

  • Comprehensive discussion of assessment and treatment methods.
  • Key elements of treatment, including awareness training, habit reversal, and maintenance techniques.
  • Helpful ideas for treating clients with other disorders in addition to TTM.
  • "What Do We Need to Know?" chapter, addressing clients’ and families’ frequently asked questions.
  • Adjunctive cognitive-behavioral strategies, including family and group interventions.
  • Resources for clinicians, clients, and families.

With the increasing recognition of body-focused repetitive behavior disorders and their negative impact upon the lives of sufferers, the clinical psychologist, psychiatrist, social worker, counselor, or school practitioner needs the broadest understanding of the problem, which can be found in this reader-friendly volume.

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This was a very helpful guide to understanding Trichotillomania and how it differs from other disorders, such as OCD. There are useful worksheets for the client and diagrams to help explain and discuss the problem right from the start in a non-judgmental, thorough manner. There are also helpful and specific treatment recommendations and ways to customize to your particular client. Great book.

Thank you for writing this book. It provides useful hands on information based on empirical studies. As someone who is planning on starting a practice to treat hair pulling and related disorders, I found this to contain necessary information and guidance in how to treat these common disorders. Unfortunately, research is lacking in how to best treat these problems, but this book brings the best of what's available in a small easy to read guide.

Thank you so much for this book! I am in grad school right now and during my summer break I try to read more about potential issues that my clients may present with and this is a great resource to learn from.

EDIT: It's been months since I read this book, but I still reference it probably once a week.

PROS:
Awesome, easy-to-read, format. It was clinical but not boring, dry, or painful. I was engaged the entire time.
Fantastic examples. I love case studies because they allow me to see how the therapist interacts with the patient and how I might phrase things. The author did a great job explaining the steps to help a person recover from trich.
Loved the worksheets and other handouts provided. I felt like I was getting workshop'd and trained just by reading this book. It was very thorough but not detail-ridden and I walked away with comprehensive knowledge about this particular aspect of the DSM.

CONS:
I've got none. This book is awesome in every way.
