Abstract

Self-monitoring, a competing response and response cost were used in the successful treatment of a 49 year old female patient with a 19 year history of trichotillomania. Self-monitoring and a competing response produced significant decreases in hair-pulling, but still continued as the patient found it pleasurable at times of stress. The addition of response cost procedures overcame this.
