Chronic hair pulling, exhibited by a 27 month-old boy was ameliorated in a 15-week treatment. The methodology focused on teaching the parents to apply a specific combination of differential reinforcement and response-chain interruption procedures. Follow-ups at 6 and 12 months revealed neither the recurrence of hair pulling nor the appearance of other problematic behaviors. © 1979.
