How to Diagnose & Treat BFRBs: A Continuing Education Webinar for Therapists

Dr. Laura Chackes, Licensed Psychologist and BFRB expert, lead this one-hour webinar for therapists who want to gain confidence in recognizing body-focused repetitive behaviors (BFRBs) in your clients and providing evidence-based, effective treatment.

This training is for you if:

  • You’re a mental health therapist or prescriber who’d like to be able to identify when a client is struggling with a BFRB (because if you have at least 20 clients it’s likely that at least one has a BFRB)
  • You know a lot or absolutely nothing about BFRBs (all will gain some new insights)
  • You’re unsure of whether you should treat a client with a BFRB, and if so, which treatment approaches are most effective

In this webinar you'll learn:

  • What BFRBs are and the truth behind common myths about BFRBs.
  • Which treatment approaches are evidence-based and most effective.
  • How the key to relief from the suffering BFRBs cause is actually the opposite of what most people think.
