TLC - January 2015
Did you make a New Year's resolution about hair pulling, skin picking, nail biting, or other BFRBs? Here at TLC, we like to focus on positive changes we can make to reduce the impact of these behaviors on our lives.


Here are five ways to get started and TLC resources to help you achieve your goals.


1. Find a Treatment Provider
TLC's Treatment Provider Referrals are updated daily - Check your state for treatment provider referrals or try an online self-help program or an app to help you track your progress. 


2. Take Care of Yourself 
A comprehensive approach to change, including taking care of your mind, body and spirit, can help reduce BFRB triggers. Dr. Renae Reinardy explains how in this free article,  Treating the Whole Person: A Personal User's Guide. 

3. Join a Support Community
Join an  in-person or online support group. Or, start a support group of your own!  Support groups help you end the isolation caused by BFRBs,  learn recovery tools, and stay motivated.
4. Talk About BFRBs
Talking about BFRBs  decreases the shame and embarrassment of having them. Need help talking to your family? Share this Dad to Dad video. Or print/email these FAQs to help get the conversation started.
5. Share Your Story
Sometimes putting our experiences down in writing can help process emotions surrounding BFRBs.  Sharing your story will also help break the stigma for others -- Submit your story, essay, artwork or poem and get inspired by inspirational stories from others here >>
And if you're still feeling stuck, Dr. Carol Novak walks you through  Barriers to Recovery  in this article -->>
