I was asked by a recent client about what resources were available for those that wanted to find out more about trichotillomania. The woman sitting across from me was bewildered with all the information on the internet in regards to trich and wanted my help to try and sort through it. Here are some great places to get you started if you need a reference point to learn more about trich, if you or someone you love has the disorder and what you can do about it.
