Description

TLC's Annual Conference on Body-Focused Repetitive Behaviors is the only event of its kind in the world.

There is nothing like connecting face-to-face with other people affected by these disorders.

BFRB researchers, expert treatment providers, community leaders, and changemakers will guide nearly 500 individuals, families, and treatment providers through a powerful weekend of education, support, and, most importantly, healing.

Join us in Chantilly, VA, May 2-5, 2019 at the Westfields Marriott Washington Dulles hotel.

Activities will begin with registration on Thursday, May 2 at 6:00 pm, and continue through Sunday, May 5th, at 12:00 pm. The first sessions begin Friday at 1:30pm.

With over 60 expert-led seminars, covering topics like advances in treatment and research, behavioral management, self-help, and emotional healing, you can build your own program for recovery on the topics that matter to YOU. Special workshops are offered for specific BFRBs as well as for kids, teens, and parents. A continuing education track for licensed professionals offers exclusive opportunities to learn the latest in treatment advances from expert clinicians and treatment providers.

The conference is often described as life-changing -- please join us for this incredible event.
