Neurobiology of BFRBs
Join Dr. Dougherty in a discussion about the known neurobiological differences between those who have BFRBs, and those who don’t, as well differences between individuals with this picking disorders. Dr. Dougherty will provide insight into why neurobiology is an important component of the BPM Initiative, and what we hope to discover as the BPM gets underway.

Filling in the Gaps: Behavioral Aspects of BFRBs
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.

Translating Research Into Clinical Practice
In this workshop, two BFRB researchers will describe what they have learned about BFRB research, and how that information will apply to to clinical treatment of BFRB patients. They will offer tools for assessing treatment needs and discuss the role of comorbid disorders when determining a treatment plan for these disorders.
