Summary Trichotillomania (TTM) involves the repetitive, uncontrollable removal of hair resulting in hair loss, typically from the scalp, eyebrows, and eyelashes. TTM affects more women than men; is associated with high rates of psychiatric comorbidity, disability, and distress; and often has a chronic trajectory. Once believed to be rare, the current consensus suggests that prevalence rates of 1 % are likely to be μnder estimates. Despite the clear need for a comprehensive understanding of, and effective treatments for, TTM, it remains a poorly understood and under-researched disorder. The development of cognitive- behaviour therapy ( CBT) for TTM has occurred in the past two decades in the absence of an integrated, evidencebased cognitive behavioural model of its onset and maintenance. This chapter provides an overview of the current cognitive behavioural models proposed of TTM, and highlights findings from. new Australian research' on the disorder. Ultimately, this research extends 91owledge of the emotion regulation processes, and dysfunctional cognitions and beliefs implicated in TTM, and bolsters support for interventions that target these processes. Future directions to advance CBT research in TTM are proposed.
