Habit Reversal Training (HRT) has historically been referred to as the “gold standard” evidence-based treatment (EBT) for Body-Focused Repetitive Behaviors (BFRBs). The Comprehensive Behavioral Model (ComB), with which it shares a behavioral theoretical underpinning, provides a useful conceptual framework for the treatment of BFRBs, guiding targeted cognitive, behavioral, and traditional CBT interventions. More recently, “Third Wave” CBT BFRB research has broadened the BFRB treatment landscape, adding Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) as evidence-based adjunctive treatment to HRT and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) as an adjunct or stand-alone treatment for BFRBs. Although all of these EBTs share underlying behavioral principles, there is presently no unified treatment model. This session presents an integrated behavioral approach to the treatment of BFRBs.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Describe key aspects of the epidemiology of BFRBs that demonstrate the need for the advances in the treatment of BFRBs

  2. Describe each current evidence-based therapy protocol for the treatment of BFRBs

  3. Describe the strengths and limitations of each evidence-based treatment protocol for BFRBs

  4. Explain the advantages of using an integrative model in treating BFRBs to maximize successful treatment outcomes

  5. Demonstrate an integrative behavioral treatment plan that may be utilized in working with patients with BFRBs
