Trichotillomania - how biased are you?

In this talk, I will give a brief overview of my three most recent studies investigating Trichotillomania (compulsive hair-pulling). The first two studies will show how we can use linguistic paradigms to investigate cognitive biases in Trichotillomania. In the third study, I will highlight some of the challenges faced by hair-pullers, as we look at stigmatising attitudes and emotional empathy levels towards hair-pullers.
