So, What Do We Do?.... Registration As a habit becomes part of normal life, we grow unaware of it. One way of becoming aware of a habit is to measure its frequency, for example with the help of a hand-counter. With each episode of scratching the counter is pressed. Each evening the result is registered on the chart provided. Registration is very important as it interferes with daily life, introduces discipline that is necessary for success and provides a result that can be easily measured. The trouble taken in registration is the price to be paid for breaking the habit. Consistency and discipline for sufficient length of time are required for healing to occur.

Level 3 of treatment begins with registration, in order to map your behaviour.

Don't avoid scratching. Allow registration to make you more aware of your habit!
