Palm Beach trichotillomania (trich) support group

Posted by | 19 comments

Okay, so in addition to the possible Palm Beach OCD support group, I am also thinking about forming a trichotillomania (trich) support group. For those of you who aren’t familiar with trichotillomania, it’s an impulse control disorder that is associated with compulsive hair-pulling behaviors. It is likely that trich will soon be officially reclassified as an OC-spectrum disorder in the upcoming DSM-V, which is the manual that psychiatrists and psychologists use when making mental health diagnoses. Possibilities for the group location include Palm Beach Gardens, Jupiter, Juno, or West Palm Beach. Miami and Fort Lauderdale locations might also be considered, but these are unlikely at this point. If you’re interested in this, please let me know. If you would like to receive email reminders about upcoming support groups, you can access our sign-up form here. Questions? Comments? Sound off...

Posted by | 0 comments

Several support groups for individuals with OCD are conveniently located near Miami, Fort Lauderdale, and Boca Raton.  Some groups are facilitated by licensed clinical psychologists, whereas others are led by individuals with OCD.  To view current support groups in South Florida (Dade, Broward, and Palm Beach counties), visit the IOCDF’s support group page here.  Each support group listing provides information about the group’s focus, target age group, location, and leader.  Listings also contain contact information for the sponsor of the group in case you want to obtain additional information prior to attending.
