Our groups are led by Lauren McKeaney, a Skin Picking Disorder Specialist whose 27 years with dermatillomania turned her from silent sufferer to adamant advocate and founder of the Picking Me Foundation. BFRB Support group will focus on listening to our experiences with the disorders, worksheets based on ACT/HRT/CBT/Perfectionism, sharing medical BFRB updates, practicing keeping our fingers busy and off our bodies with fidget toys, creating and maintaining hair pulling/ skin picking logs, tips on how to share about BFRBs with loved ones, co-workers, schools, and more! Please email Lauren@pickingme.org if interested.
