Habit Reversal: non-toxic and cost-effective in chronic atopic eczema

author/source: DrB



Dr Jonathan Goulding 
is a Consultant Dermatologist at Solihull and Good Hope Hospitals, UK. 

He developed an interest in psychodermatology during specialist training, and set up the first service of its kind in the West Midlands of England, in 2012. He runs a fortnightly multidisciplinary psychodermatology service at Solihull Hospital with colleagues in psychology and liaison psychiatry. 

In the following 10 minute slide presentation he sees habit reversal as a viable treatment option for patients with chronic atopic eczema seen in hospital dermatology clinics. 

He describes, with two illustrative case studies, how he came to use habit reversal, how he works with it, and the sort of results which may be achieved. Finally, the potential for realising significant cost-savings is considered.
