3 Reasons We’re Excited for TLC’s 2016 BFRB Conference

March 10, 2016

Trichotillomania Learning Center’s 2016 Body Focused Repetitive Behavior Conference is coming up next month. We are excited to be attending for the second year in a row and here’s why:

 

1) We get to meet old friends!

 

 

As someone with trichotillomania, Aneela’s been in the online BFRB community for a while, making a few friends along the way. Having been there last year, she says, “It is such a good feeling to meet and be with people just like me, yet different in their own right. It is so freeing to not have to worry about make up or wigs and just be comfortable in my own skin.”

There will be a few familiar faces, like our friends & BFRB advocates Pavitt, Nate, & Jude and we finally get to meet our twitter friend Liz Atkins, an extraordinary artist who is keynoting the event! Big “thank you” hugs await Jennifer and Leslie and the rest of the TLC Crew who works so hard to make the conference happen. 

 

2) We finally get to see Trichster!

 

We've been hoping the award-winning film, Trichster would come to a theater near us since it premiered. So thankful for director Jillian Corsie and others who are using their creativity to spreading the word about BFRBs!

 

We’ve been hoping the award-winning film, Trichster would come to a theater near us since it premiered. The wait is over! The Trichster team is screening the film the first night of the conference. We are thankful for director Jillian Corsie and others who use their creativity to spread the word about BFRBs!

 

3) We get to make new friends!

 

 

As a conference exhibitor, we’ll get to meet lots of new friends. We want to know more about your BFRB experience, and let you try out HabitAware so you can see what it can do. So, please come say hello!

(If you can’t make it to the conference, feel free to say hello via email or sign up below for our newsletter.)
