The Johns Hopkins Center for OCD, Anxiety, & Related Disorders for Children (COACH) is looking for participants with Trichotillomania, or hair pulling, to participate in a study examining the effects of a smart wearable device on an individual’s awareness, frequency, and severity of hair pulling behaviors. Potential benefits of the study include a decrease in automatic hair pulling behaviors and their severity.
Participation will last 4 weeks and will consist of 3 assessment sessions, conducted in-person at the Johns Hopkins East Baltimore campus. Eligible participants must be 18 years or older, meet diagnostic criteria for trichotillomania, willing to attend appointments in-person, and be English speaking.
Participants will receive a $20 gift card for completing each assessment visit (up to $60 in total for completing all 3 study visits), along with a voucher to cover the cost of parking if needed. Participants can also choose to withdraw from the study at any time and all records and information will be kept confidential.
