Eight Norwegian participants in an AEBT-T group treatment study for trichotillomania were interviewed post-treatment about their experience as participants. Respondents' subjective understanding of central concepts in the manual were assessed with the aim to understand the participants constructed meanings. Several main themes were constructed from analysis: The disorder, Group, Seminar, Getting Well, Theoretical Understanding, Information, and The Arrangements. The conceptualisation of trichotillomania as a symptom-disorder or as an Expression of underlying psychopathology was a recurring sub-theme across main- themes, and therefore explored in further detail.
