Feedback form is now closed.
In this workshop, we will discuss what we know about the behavioral characteristics of BFRBs and how this knowledge relates to current non-medication treatments such as behavior therapy. We'll also review the current gaps in our understanding of BFRBs and associated problems, how the BPMI study will help us fill these gaps, and how we will use this new information to not only make existing treatments more effective but also to develop new treatments for individuals with BFRBs.
