A companion workbook for Trichotillomania: An ACT-Enhanced Behavior Therapy Approach-Therapist Guide

This workbook is designed specifically for individuals with trichotillomania (hair pulling) and is meant to be used in conjunction with visits to a qualified mental health professional. It outlines a two-phase treatment program that will help you get your hair pulling under control and find a way to function with your pulling-related thoughts and urges.

In the first part of the program, you will be taught skills for stopping and preventing your unconscious pulling episodes. In the second part, you will be introduced to Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). Often-times, it feels as though the only way to control your pulling is by controlling the urges to pull, but ACT offers you another alternative. ACT can help you learn how to accept your pulling-related thoughts, feelings, and urges, thus making it easier not to pull. During this program you will come to understand that just because you think about pulling your hair, it doesn't mean you have to. Your therapist will talk to you about the function of language and teach you how to respond to thoughts about pulling less literally.

Over the course of 10 weeks, you will learn how to recognize your pulling and warning signals, use self-management strategies for stopping and preventing pulling, stop fighting against your pulling-related urges and thoughts, and work towards increasing the quality of your life.
