Embracing Dermatillomania

EMBRACING DERMATILLOMANIA: My Skin Picking Recovery is Angela Hartlin’s second memoir detailing her recovery journey from Excoriation Disorder. After her appearance on The Doctors, Angela started a 12 week therapy program with licensed therapist Karen Pickett and documented the full process in this honest, step-by-step, recovery guide.

Angela documents the struggles she faces each week while providing insight from the challenges that Karen offers her. Journal entries from Angela’s therapy sessions includes feedback from articles, opinions about the material, and questions she asked herself to confront her compulsive skin picking. Other topics discussed in this book include anxiety, trauma, and chronic pain.

This is the unofficial sequel to the 2009 release, FOREVER MARKED: A Dermatillomania Diary, that readers have hoped for. It includes entries from Karen Pickett, which showcases the relationship between client and therapist while providing worksheets and educational material to readers.
