Welcome to TLC
For Treatment Professionals
If you are a clinician or researcher interested in the field of trichotillomania, skin picking and repetitive body-focused behaviors, you will find a wealth of resources on this website. TLC is a non-profit organization working with the world's leading clinicians and researchers to provide the most accurate and up-to-date information possible. We offer services for treatment professionals and researchers, as well as patients and their families.
Of particular interest are treatment guides, research updates, books and videos, support group listings, treatment provider listings, our annual Call for Research Proposals, and our Professional Training Institute. We hope you will join us at one of the local events we hold all across the country.
