Experimental: Online cognitive training
Online cognitive training will provides eight sessions of a computerized training game. Each session will last about 30-40 minutes, and participants will undergo 2 sessions each week over a 4-week period.
Behavioral: Online cognitive training
Online cognitive training is a web-based video game that offers systematic training of response inhibition capabilities. Participants will be guided to make progress in an individually-tailored fashion to master increasingly difficult game levels.
No Intervention: Waitlist control
This is a 1-month waitlist control to be compared with the active online cognitive training intervention. This is a no intervention control group.
- Change on the NIMH Trichotillomania Severity and Impairment Scales [ Time Frame: Baseline, 4 weeks, and 1-month Follow-up ]These are clinician-rated measures for assessing the severity of trichotillomania and the impairment caused by hair pulling. This measure will be administered at baseline, at 4 weeks, and at 1-month follow-up.
- Change on the Clinical Global Impression Scale [ Time Frame: Baseline, 4 weeks, and 1-month Follow-up ]This is a widely used brief assessment tool for evaluating illness severity, global improvement or change, and therapeutic response. This measure will be administered at baseline, at 4 weeks, and at 1-month follow-up.
- Change on the Trichotillomania Scale for Children [ Time Frame: Baseline, 4 weeks, and 1-month Follow-up ]This is a widely used self-report measure of hair pulling symptoms. Both the participant and parent will fill out this questionnaire at baseline, at 4 weeks, and at 1-month follow-up.
