An Attempt to teach an self-stim alternative to curb skin picking
At one point, we enlisted the aid of a rubber band on the wrist as a self-stim alternative. The hope was that when experiencing an urge to pick a scab, she would snap the bandaid on her wrist. It didn’t really work for Jess, but her explanation was quite funny. The reward, had she resisted scab picking for 5 days, was a trip out for chicken nuggets.
