About the event

The conference will take place over 2 days. 

Day 1 will be a Research Symposium. For the very first time, experts from a wide range of scientific  backgrounds will be travelling to Oxford to share insights relevant to  Body Focused Repetitive Behaviours (BFRBs), e.g. hair pulling and skin  picking. Some of these scientists have studied BFRBs for their whole  careers, others had never heard of BFRBs until this year, but all will  have something important to tell us. Alongside the researchers, people  with lived experience of BFRBs will share their insights - lived  experience is at the heart of this event. 

On Day 2 we will have a community day.  This event will be a relaxed way for people with BFRBs (and their loved  ones) to connect in a safe space. Activities will include gentle  exercise, support groups, art, and talks on treatment and research, with  plenty of time for informal discussions. There will also be an optional  opportunity to participate in BFRB-related research at the event.

Tickets are available for both in-person and online participation. You can find more information and get your tickets here.
