Rohrer outlines a groundbreaking 7-point profile of the child hair puller that she uncovered by teaching healing techniques to trichotillomania sufferers and parents. This profile covers:

Up to 15 million Americans struggle with Trichotillomania. Those who suffer with it are driven to pull hair from their scalps, eyelashes, eyebrows or other parts of their bodies. Many sufferers hide their affliction by covering affected areas of the body with makeup, hats or clothing. As a result, hair-pullers also suffer from silent shame and live their lives hiding their problem from others.
Trichotillomania is especially painful for children and teens because they face added social pressures and fear of criticism in many challenging public environments such as school, day-care, team sports, extra-curricular activities, camps, church events and more. In addition, whenever there is a hair pulling child within a family, the entire family suffers.
To date, there is neither a medical cure for the disorder nor a clear scientific understanding of its causes. However, former hair puller, Abby Leora Rohrer has discovered concrete answers to the puzzle of why many children begin to compulsively pull their hair out and why many go on to become long-term adult hair pullers.
Author Abby Rohrer knows the pain of growing up with Trichotillomania firsthand. In "Why Won't My Child Stop Hair Pulling? The Inside Truth About Trichotillomania in Children and Teens," she includes a wealth of knowledge gleaned, not only from her personal history, but also from thousands of hair pulling children, adults and parents dealing with the disorder. At the age of 12, Rohrer began compulsively pulling her own hair out. Her work, including the Pull-Free, At Last!™ Healing System, emerged from her personal experience of healing her own 27-year hair pulling compulsion. "I had tried a variety of therapies, human potential trainings, self-help books and much more, all to no avail. Then, one day, I gave up looking for outside answers and began to focus on my relationship with myself. I not only discovered a new me, but a natural system for healing. As a result, I have now been pull-free for over thirteen years," explains Rohrer.
Through her techniques, Rohrer has taught others how to heal Trichotillomania, bulimia, compulsive overeating, chronic depression and more. Her work has delivered both results for her clients and praise from colleagues.
"Why Won't My Child Stop Hair Pulling? is a triumph for hair pullers worldwide and their families. With wisdom and insight, Abby Rohrer tells the true inner tale of the hair pulling compulsion . . . Rohrer's insights into hair pulling as an issue of relationship will empower so many who struggle desperately for freedom and for hope . . . and provides real skills and tools for hair pullers of all ages, and parents, to deal more effectively with their feelings, heal and move forward to live wonderful lives full of meaning and joy!" --Mary F.
