Learning about body-focused repetitive behaviors and how to be of best support to your student and their family leads to a positive school experience for all involved.
The TLC website provides health education resources for educators and staff to increase awareness and knowledge of body-focused repetitive behaviors, including a variety of FAQs and self-help articles.
Educators and staff may benefit from learning more about best practices in supporting students experiencing BFRBs through TLC's Virtual Professional Training Institute (VPTI).

Choosing a therapeutic provider to support your BFRB journey is a process that takes time. Patience and persistence are key to finding your own level of success.
Medications used for OCD and other anxiety disorders have been tested on subjects with BFRBs with limited success. There has not yet been any single medication or combined medications approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the treatment of BFRBs.
