"While psychiatric books line the shelves of libraries and bookstores, there is a dearth of books that focus on BFRBs. As the editors poignantly point out, BFRBs are a key aspect of human suffering yet are an often neglected area of clinical care. This book answers the call for a publication that gives undivided attention to BFRBs. Clinicians now will be fully prepared with the latest knowledge, proper evaluation techniques, and cutting-edge treatment options for patients with these disorders."-- "Bradley R. Cutler, M.D., DOODY'S PUBLISHERS' CLUB", "December 2011"
From the Inside Flap
Trichotillomania, skin picking, and other body-focused repetitive disorders are as common among the population as access to comprehensive clinical information is rare. Although research into habitual stereotypic movements, as they are also known, has accelerated in the last 10 years, no volume has yet presented a systematic review of clinical characteristics, diagnosis, evaluation, and treatment options. Until now. Trichotillomania, Skin Picking, and Other Body-Focused Repetitive Behaviors provides clinicians, researchers, family members, and individuals who have these disorders with the cutting-edge, comprehensive resource they need to understand and address the problem.
Coverage is detailed enough for the clinician, yet written in an accessible style to benefit patients and their families. Of special note are the separate sections for adults and children with these disorders, reflecting the distinct challenges of treating each group. Body-focused repetitive disorders cause a tremendous amount of distress and suffering. In addition to providing the most current, evidence-based assessment and treatment strategies, the authors emphasize the personal and social consequences patients face and make a persuasive case for more research, heightened physician awareness, and greater professional empathy in battling this often debilitating disorder.

When I saw "scrapping" instead of "scraping" (p. 109), I knew writing was not for this guy (not in English, anyway).
Treatment recommendations are too noncommittal and therefore vapid.
This one is going to the very back of my bookshelf.
