Abstract

A case is described of intense aversion to personal body hair on the chest, legs and arms. Exposure methods of behavioural treatment were used, combined with interpretative ones. Exposure was found to facilitate self-exploration, which in turn led to the successful completion of exposure treatment. The circumstances under which exposure treatment can benefit from being combined with interpretative work are discussed.
