"A must-have for anyone who has suffered in isolation." --Christina Pearson, Executive Director, Trichotillomania Learning Center"The Hair-Pulling Problem really deserves the description self-help book. You can really use it to get control of your hair pulling and your life." --Patricia Perkins, Executive Director, The Obsessive-Compulsive Foundation"A wonderfully clear and helpful book aimed at patients. A very helpful guide for patients who suffer from this painful disorder."--Michael A. Jenike, MD, Harvard Medical School"An accessible, comprehensive, sensitive, and scientifically accurate look at Trichotillomania, a silent and potentially devastating disorder.... The lay public should read this book if for no other reason to understand the complexity and diversity of problems with which we as humans struggle and eventually overcome."--OCD Newsletter


Trichotillomania, one of the family of obsessive-compulsive disorders, may afflict as many as 6 to 8 million people in the United States. Now, a leading authority on obsessive-compulsive disorders, Dr. Fred Penzel, has written the most up-to-date, comprehensive, and authoritative guide to this syndrome available, filled with reassuring advice for patients and their families.
Endorsed by the Trichotillomania Learning Center, the leading advocate group for this disorder, this superb handbook includes all the information a patient or relative would need to understand this illness and to cope with it. Penzel provides a detailed discussion of causes and he reviews all the treatment options, describing the most effective medications and their side effects as well as the recommended cognitive and behavioral treatments. He shows patients how to design a self-help program and gain control of their compulsive behavior, how to prevent relapse, describes trichotillomania and its treatment in children, and suggests coping strategies for families at home and in public situations. He also provides a guide to all the resources available, including internet sites, recommended books, and videos, and outlines ways to start a support group. The appendix will include questionnaires, clinical rating scales, and the official DSM diagnostic criteria for the disorder, so readers can decide if they need to seek behavioral and possibly medical treatment.
Dr. Penzel has helped patients with OCD and trichotillomania for over twenty years and is one of America's leading authorities on these disorders. Drawing on decades of hands-on experience, he has produced the most complete and scientifically accurate handbook available on this disorder, a comforting guide packed with information to help people with trichotillomania get well and stay well.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Best book I have read on the subject 25. Oktober 2006
Von Meg - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
My six year old daughter has been dealing with trich for several months now, and I have read a ton of books and internet sites. Dr. Penzel's book is the most comprehensive and helpful. Despite having only one chapter relating specifically to children, it is an extremely helpful one and the rest of the book is very informative about the disorder in general as well. His suggestions for motivating younger children have been particularly valuable to us. His advice to and compassion for parents of children with trich has been a lifeline for me-whenever I feel hopeless or that I am losing patience I go back and re-read it and it helps me a lot. I can't say this book or anything else has gotten trich under control for us yet (as Dr. Penzel explains, treatment can be difficult with such a young child), but it has definitely given us hope and gone a long way in helping us to cope with the disorder ourselves and not make things worse for our child.

As far as adults go, I don't have trich so I can't really speak to how helpful it would be for adults who do, but I will say that this is the only book I have read that offers lots of actual specific, practical advice in every area from treatment options to medications to diets, supplements and alternative therapies in an non-biased, factually-based manner. It is certainly the only book I have read that lays out a detailed, specific self-treatment plan. I highly recommend this book to anyone struggling with this difficult disorder.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Informative, educational and covers all the avenues 2. September 2006
Von D. Wiste - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
This book was educational and informative, listing a variety of options and avenues for the possible treatment of Trichotillomania. As a trich patient, I only wish this research and information was available to my parents and myself 36 years ago when I began pulling. Never too late, however, as the behavior modification suggestions and possible medication treatments listed and explored have already started me on my road to controlling my urges and actions. A must read for anyone who may suffer from this disorder, or his or her parent.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Thorough and helpful 26. Oktober 2004
Von Trich veteran - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Fabulous book. Chapters on understanding the condition, the physiology of hair, and guides to finding a helpful therapist or to conducting behavioral modification theraphy yourself. We all know how hard this is, so seek any resources you can find -- this book being a great one.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Dr. Penzel is Excellent 25. Juni 2008
Von Paula J. Penna - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
My 11 year old daughter suffers from Trich, and we recently began working with Dr. Penzel. We can't say enough about how knowledgable he is, caring, and what a calming affect he has on the parent. We are frustrated with how difficult this is to treat in a young child, but hopeful that with Dr. Penzel's help, we can manage and overcome it.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A really great book for us living with Trich! 23. Februar 2014
Von Jake Eastern - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
The book is very useful - with sections that give the facts on available treatments and how well they work. It also has a section on the side effects to your hair like how long it takes typically for permanent damage to set in, and what steps you can take to try to help prevent that. There is a section on Trich in children, but unfortunately that section isn't very long - so I'd say this is a good book for general knowledge and more useful for adult sufferers. Very informative
