The Academy offers Online, Live Video Classes in Mindfulness Based Impulse Reduction for BFRBs - for Adults, Teens, & Children, instructed by Christina Pearson, and we host the Annual BFRB Retreat.

Our goal is to reduce BFRB related suffering and increase options for those who are seeking support and recovery from hair pulling, skin picking, cheek biting, nose picking, lip picking, nail-biting and related problematic behaviors.

What are BFRBs?

BFRB stands for Body Focused Repetitive Behaviors; which is an “umbrella term” developed to encompassing pseudo-grooming behaviors such as hair pulling, skin picking, nail-biting, etc.. The concern may arrise when this behavior then becomes a comulpsion which can lead to long term suffering.
