Trichotillomania: A Case Study

  • Price:
  • £10.00
Quick Description:

Trichotillomania is a form of OCD that is characterised by compulsive and ritualistic hair-pulling that the sufferer struggles to resist the urge to do.

Like many variants of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, Trichotillomania is widely misunderstood and there is little awareness of the condition outside the medical field; this programme was produced with the aim
of rectifying that.

In 2017, Kirsty, a long-term sufferer of Trichotillomania, consulted with UKTV's popular medical reality show Dr Christian Will See You Now to seek treatment for her condition. A year since her appearance on the show, we conducted follow-up interviews to see how she was doing and ascertain a deeper understanding of this debilitating condition. Kirsty's forthcoming and candid detailing of her experience has enabled us to create an informative and engaging case study for experts and non-experts alike.
