Serin Center

Children with ADHD and anxiety appear to experience more emotional dysregulation than their peers. While they experience the same emotions as individuals their age, they experience them much more frequently and intensely. They may be more likely to get stuck and caught up in their emotion due to difficulties with executive functioning skills and seeing the bigger picture.

Hair Pulling

Hair pulling affects approximately 1%-2% of the general population. Recurrent hair pulling from any region of the body results in hair loss. There have been repeated attempts to decrease or stop hair pulling. Hair pulling causes significant distress in social engagements, relationships, occupational or other important areas of functioning. Hair pulling is frequently occurring with another body-focused repetitive behavior such as skin picking, nail biting or lip chewing.
