Hi Avious,
There are some behavioral techniques that can be very helpful in stopping trich- a good book that I can recommend is called The Habit Change Workbook by Claiborn. He is a specialist in working with ocd and trichotilomania . When you work behaviorally, you start by monitoring, and you also get into what triggers you. Eventually, you can change the behaviors. Trich is often associated with ocd as well, so some of the methods we use with ocd can also be helpful.
Hope this helps
